Preconception Peer Educators (PPE) Program

The Preconception Peer Educators (PPE) Program was developed to raise awareness among college students about the disproportionately high infant mortality rates among racial and ethnic minorities. The PPE Program is based on the concept of peer education as a teaching tool to educate fellow college students about healthy behaviors and the social determinants of health that impact health disparities.

The PPE program aims to reach college-aged students with targeted health messages emphasizing preconception health and care as well as train student to become peer educators on their campus.
