About Healthy Cats

Healthy Cats Peer Educators are student leaders dedicated to promoting health education and wellness throughout the Texas State campus and the surrounding community through presentations and community outreach. Topics addressed include sexual health, drugs and alcohol use, stress, mental health and nutrition.

Joining Healthy Cats

Joining Healthy Cats has many benefits. It provides you with a chance to increase your knowledge about health-related issues, gain self-confidence, improve your communication skills, and to provide a needed service on your campus.

You should consider joining Healthy Cats if you have a desire to work with the Texas State community, motivation to increase knowledge of health, and a sincere concern for the overall well-being of yourself and other students. Healthy Cats members must be able to work independently or on a team and have the ability to be open-minded and non-judgmental when discussing sensitive issues. The new Healthy Cats meeting time is Tuesdays from 5-6 PM at the Student Health Center in room 202.
