Spring Community Health Fair
This is a springtime event that encourages the citizens of Ivins to focus on their health. RVU students offer such services as vital screenings and demonstrations on OMM, ultrasound, and breast self-exams. They also offer information on sugar intake, mental wellness, and the opioid crisis.
This year instead of holding our Fall Festival, throughout the month of October, Rocky Vista University (RVU) will be hosting a Virtual Fall Health Fair featuring health-themed activities created by RVU student clubs and organizations (and approved by staff physicians). Families and people of all ages can participate with safe at-home and virtual activities, such as crafting DIY stethoscopes and protective masks, creating an edible bone model, a virtual Escape the Room, cooking healthy fall recipes, and of course, the popular Halloween Costume Contest. Please note: any group activity must observe social distancing. All activities will be sorted into three categories; children, adults and seniors.
Every October, RVU hosts a Fall Festival for families in the surrounding community. This is a fun event full of healthy, interactive wellness games hosted by the RVUCOM-SU clubs, live music by local artists and a costume contest. Recently, RVUCOM-SU has joined efforts with Red Rock Running Events to provide a BOO DASH, trick-or-treat 5K race – a SPOOKTACULAR experience for all!
Military Appreciation Ceremony
Veterans and their families are invited to attend the annual Military Appreciation Ceremony at the Southern Utah Veterans Home. Each year, a distinguished military officer is invited to give the keynote address.
