The Sexual Health Awareness Peer Educators are a valuable aspect of Lafene Health Center’s comprehensive health services provided to K-State students.

This course (EDCEP 312) develops the peer educator’s knowledge of human sexuality, sexual abstinence, sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV/AIDS), risky behaviors, alcohol and other drug use, violence and sexual assault. It is the goal of this program to develop interpersonal helping skills of the peer educator to empower K-State students to make informed, healthy decisions that will enhance their academic success.
