RVU-CO has officially kicked off its Days of Diversity Series! During “Dances from Around the World”, students from the Colorado Campus learned about traditional and modern dances, including the Salsa of Spain and the the traditional Bhangra folk dance.┬áThe idea for the series originated during a Gays, Lesbians, and Allies (GLAM) club meeting and is dedicated to celebrating the many cultures found in the world and at RVU, as well as equipping students with the tools to practice medicine as compassionate and collaborative physicians. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in as many events as possible!
