Louise Langheier

Peer Health Exchange
CEO, Co-Founder
Louise serves as the CEO and Co-Founder of Peer Health Exchange (PHE), a national non-profit organization whose mission is to give teenagers the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy decisions. They do this by training college students to teach a comprehensive health curriculum in public high schools that lack health education. Since 2003, PHE has trained 5,000 college student volunteers to reach 57,000 high school students across five cities, seeing strong initial results. Today, PHE is working to deepen impact on every teen it serves, evaluate its effect more robustly, and develop and test additional methods for impact. Louise graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in History while co-founding Community Health Educators, the student volunteer program out of which PHE grew. She is still actively involved in Yale’s public service center, Dwight Hall, and sits on the Board of Directors of Generation Citizen and America Achieves. Louise is an Ashoka and Aspen Education fellow. She lives in San Francisco with her husband Jason.
