Brion Moss, Peer Educator
Brion Moss is a student in the Master's program in nutrition. He is a certified personal trainer, and a member of the Lehman College President’s Service Corps. He likes to draw, watch movies, read, and cook (everything from scratch when possible) in his spare time. He believes working in the Wellness Education and Promotion Office will help make him more of a well-rounded individual. Good health is more than just the absence of disease, eating healthily or being physically active; it’s being armed with the tools needed to cope with every day stress and other social factors. He looks forward to learning from colleagues, mentors, directors, and fellow students during this experience.
