Excited Children in Science Class

INTERACTIVE HEALTH EDUCATION

Designed by medical students to provide elementary-aged children the health education they need while in an online classroom.

Home: Welcome

ABOUT US

We are the Pediatrics Club at Rocky Vista University School of Osteopathic Medicine and have partnered with the Denver Osteopathic Foundation to provide Food, Fun, Fitness in preschools across the Denver area. This is an interactive program that introduces young students to the importance of establishing and maintaining healthy lifestyles. Food, Fun, Fitness involves medical students, pre-school students, and preschool teachers as partners in education.  

As many schools remain online or limited in their capacity to have in-person programming while we endure the impacts of COVID-19, we recognized the need to move the service of Food, Fun, Fitness to an online format. 

The videos, activities, and resources found on this webpage can be used not only by teachers to provide programming to their students, but also for parents eager to engage with their children on topics surrounding wellbeing. We hope that you and your children enjoy!
