The Emory Human Health Program encourages students to take an active role in their current and future health while developing foundational knowledge in the science of health.

The program leverages four key areas for optimizing health:

  • Education in the science of health and well-being

  • Engagement by providing personalized information on current health status

  • Empowerment of individuals to discern and make healthy life choices

  • Encouragement for developing and maintaining healthy behaviors and habits

Our peer-driven approach draws on the tenets of Predictive Health and creates an avenue for students to explore innovative health related topics while shaping their college experience and building a community of health.

The foundational course in the Human Health Program, Health 100, is required of all first-year students.  This course provides students with tools to discover their own health and the opportunity to develop personal strategies to enhance their health and well-being. With oversight from Emory College faculty, student Peer Health Partners facilitate individual sections of Health 100. These Peer Health Partners have been trained for their role by taking Health 200 and are supervised and mentored by faculty in Health 300.
