Husky PAWS (Peer Assisted Wellness Services)

Educate… Motivate… Advocate…

The Husky PAWS (Peer Assisted Wellness Services) are students who are trained to educate peers with accurate and up-to-date information about various health issues that affect student success.

The Husky PAWS educate students about alcohol and other drugs, including tobacco, sexual health, mental health (stress, anxiety, depression, etc.), healthy eating and physical activity, general health (wash your hands, get some sleep, cover your cough, etc.) and any other health and wellness topics that may affect student success at BU.

You will see the PAWS on campus at informational tables where educational games and handouts are supplied for students. They are also available for presentations in the classroom, at student organization and club meetings, and the residence halls. Overall, the PAWS promote the concept of holistic health and a lifestyle conducive to wellness.
