: PRECEDE-PROCEED, a comprehensive health promotion program planning model, was applied to develop a peer nutrition education program. This program provided dietetic students with practical experiences while enhancing the nutrition resources on campus. The diagnostic phases of the model directed research involving a review of the literature, surveys, focus groups, and interviews. These results guided the structure, policies, procedures, training, and evaluation system for the Peer Nutrition Education Team, PeerNET. Evaluation results and suggestions for use of this model are discussed.
