AbstractThe Hunter-White Health Advocate Program is a unique peer-education program at the University of Arizona for Greek chapters and is facilitated through Fraternity and Sorority Programs. This program trains health advocates whom then educate their respective chapters on a number of health topics through presentations. Other requirements include attendance to health events, providing resources, and self-reflection. This evaluation compiled and analyzed three surveys using STATA and Microsoft Excel: pre-evaluations prior to the start of health advocates’ term, presentation evaluations completed by Greek members after presentations were completed by health advocates, and Campus Health Services’ Health and Wellness Survey from 2007 to 2012. The results of the evaluation show that little behavior change has taken place. Greek members participate in more risky behaviors than non-Greek members and negative behaviors have not decrease significantly. Health advocates equally chose or were chosen for the position, but did not believe the intended 20-30 minute time frame was necessary to teach material. Members did find topics to be relevant and useful and planned to use it in the future. Recommendations for improvement of the program and further evaluation were provided based on data analysis, observation, and use of the integrated theory of evaluation.
