Outreach & Peer Education
Peers Reaching Out (PROs)
PROs are UM students who take the HTH 370 class for credit to get involved with current issues (partying safe, safer sex, nutrition, stress, and more) for the student body, meet like-minded people, and learn how to present provocative health topics to their fellow students in the residence halls, classes, fraternities, sororities, and other University groups.
Why Be a PRO?
- It's a group for health-minded people.
- Get mandatory credit for HHP or elective credit for another major.
- Get help developing leadership skills.
- Gain skills in public speaking, group facilitation, outreach, writing articles, and team-building.
- Obtain expertise in health-related fields for school and employment in the future.
- Enjoy a once/semester, leadership retreat weekend, off campus.
