Health Promotion & Wellness

Creating a Healthy State

at Mississippi State University

Healthy Dawgs

Healthy Dawgs is a peer-to-peer outreach program committed to encouraging our students to achieve overall health and well-being. Students who are a part of Healthy Dawgs will have the opportunity to become Certified Peer Educators and actively seek to educate the MSU community about important wellness topics including alcohol and other drug education, mental health, nutrition, healthy relationships, sexual health, body image, and more. The Healthy Dawgs utilize the Health Hut to reach students in highly trafficked areas around campus and provide information related to initiatives, connections to campus, and other resources.
