Student-Athlete Wellness Leaders (SAWLs)
The Student-Athlete Wellness Leaders (SAWLs) program supports healthy lifestyles among student-athletes using a peer helper model. Trained varsity student-athletes serve as role models in noticing and responding to peers in need of support, and referring them to appropriate resources. This program is sponsored by Princeton University’s Athletics Department and University Health Services. Contact Kelly Widener for more information.
