2017 marked the 200th anniversary of Parkinson's disease, and we have yet to find a cure. Join us on April 4th to learn more about this cause. - THIS IS A MAKEUP FOR RHS STUDENTS.
A group of Rural Health Scholars students from Dixie State University, Southern Utah University, and Snow College travelled to rural areas of Nicaragua during March of 2018 to help in neighborhood clinical settings.
We are thankful to have worked with Global Medical Training, along with support from Days for Girls, to make this week possible.
Thanks to Karen Ganss, our RHS staff member on the trip, for all her planning efforts. Special thanks to each and every RHS student on... this trip - your dedication to service makes such a positive impact on our world!
Our 2018 Spring Break Cultural Immersion Trip students, along with our Global Medical Training staff in Nicaragua!

People with Parkinson's can enhance their daily quality of life and even build impressive speed, flexibility, & strength. You can feel and function better by participating in the Rocky Steady Boxing program. RHS is hosting an awareness event to spread the word about how Rocky Steady Boxing can help those with PD.
Our students in Nicaragua have been handing out and educating young women on how to use Days for Girls kits.
Days for Girls is an amazing organization that makes reuseable feminine hygiene kits that allow those without access to such products attend school, work, and stay clean during their menstrual cycle.
To learn more about the organization and how you can get involved locally, visit: https://www.daysforgirls.org/
All of our spring break trips are going well! Here is a little update about the Nicaragua trip!
Our travel day included GMT orientation, a tour of a local public clinic, and a stop at a fruit stand. Now we’ve arrived at our home for the week, right on the Pacific Ocean. Photos to come once I get better WiFi (if ever ha).

On Sunday, we had the pleasure of taking some RHS students to listen to President Michael Young at Rocky Vista University. President Young is a phenomenal influencer in higher education, policy shaping, and law. His presentation was engaging and he was delightful to talk with. He took a real interest in our students and our RHS Alumni were there as well! It was awesome to see our alums mentoring our current students!
President Young's bio can be found here, it's worth a read.
