Abstract

Researchers investigated the effects of participating in peer education training on 30 undergraduate peer educators. The participants were predominately female, White, Asian, or Pacific Islander, and their average age was 20 years. Participants reported significantly more leadership, health knowledge, and active involvement in changing personal health behaviors after completing peer education training than at the onset of the course. Self-esteem did not significantly increase.
