Health Worker Program

Building a healthy Cal community since 1971.

Our goals: Healthy students stay healthy; Sick students get well quickly and completely; All students take responsibility for their health and wellness; Be a real and perceived resource.

The Health Worker Program (HWP) is a student volunteer peer health education program. It's dedicated to promoting healthy personal and residential community practices, including self-care, risk management and use of health care services. The program is coordinated by a full-time health educator at University Health Services - Health Promotion Unit. Health Workers work individually and as part of a HWP team under this Coordinator and typically serve for 1-2 years in their residential community. The first residence halls Health Workers were placed in 1971.
