SHA Member Spotlight

Each quarter, a few SHAs are honored with the SHA Member Spotlight.
These SHAs are recognized for their passionate commitment to the SHA Program, their dedication to the SHA mission, and thier willingness to go above and beyond in the realm of peer health education.

Meet our Fall Quarter SHA Member Spotlight recipients, Karyn & Cherise!

"In my opinion, our biggest impact as SHAs is the ability to change a student's attitude about health.  Those who participate in our workshops and services...leave with a different or better understanding of health & are equiped to apply new knowledge to their own lives.  It's amazing to see those
"light-bulb" moments when a student learns something new or realizes something about their own health or behaviors that they would like to change."  

"My favorite SHA memory so far has to be a seeing the campaigns that we work so hard on...come to life. My favorite event was World Aids Day, where not only was I able to work with my fellow SHAs and learn more about AIDS, but also complete a successful event full of participation. Oh and also two words, Condom Roses. They are probably the best thing ever!"
