Collaboration among the Recreation and Wellness, Health Services and Nursing Department faculty and nursing students of a community-based nursing course inspired a new avenue to address health issues affecting college students, faculty and staff. Local, state and national resources are identified and evaluated for level of evidence and strength of recommendations. Traditional formats and creative venues are used in a collaborative effort to disseminate health promotion information. The collaboration across 2 academic years has resulted in peer education by 22 nursing student groups.
