Health Education

Cal Poly's Health Education program is supported by the student organization PULSE.


Peers Understanding Listening Supporting Educating (PULSE) is a nationally awarded Peer Health Education program that supports the health and wellbeing of all Cal Poly students. PULSE is composed of four teams, each dedicated to a specific area of education: Sexual Wellbeing (EROS), Mental Wellbeing (REAL), Nutrition (HEAT), and Alcohol & Drug Education (TLC). Every Peer Health Educator is professionally trained, BACCHUS Certified, and majoring in a related area of study. Our Peer Health Educators disseminate evidence-based information through private one-on-one consultations and informative group presentations to the Cal Poly community.

To find our more about our teams, click one of the four team pages found under "Peer Health Education Teams" tab. Health Education also provides links to discover additional resources we offer for students as well as parents. These include free use of a state-of-the-art massage chair and body composition analyzer, so it's worth taking a look!

Faculty, staff, resident advisors, Greek life coordinators, community groups, and campus club representatives are welcome to request an educational presentation by one of our four teams on any related topic during the academic school year. Submit a Presentation Request by filling out the Presentation Request Form. Your completed form will be sent to the PULSE email at You are also welcome to call, email, or stop by our office within the lower level of the Health Center (27-10) with any questions.
