Health Worker Program

UHS Health Workers help create a culture of health and wellness across the UC Berkeley campus!

The Health Worker Program is a peer health education program dedicated to promoting healthy personal and residential community practices, including self-care, risk management, and use of UHS health care services. Health Workers work individually and as part of a team, and typically serve for 1-2 years in their residential or academic community.
