Sometimes during college, a health body can drift off the priority list. In this interview, Jackie Gaylis speaks about her personal struggle with nutrition and health issues during her freshman year at Emory and how these issues led her to get involved in the Peer Health Partners program. As a Peer Health Partner, Jackie was able to use her personal experiences to empower incoming freshman to lead healthy lives.
Peer Health Partners (PHPs) is a unique Emory program that allows students to develop health knowledge and leadership skills as they work with first-year students under the direction of faculty in the Center for the Study of Human Health.
The Center for the Study of Human Health brings together the resources of a major research university to advance knowledge and undergraduate education in the area of human health.
