Injury Prevention & Safety Classes
Tai Chi for Health
Dr. Paul Lam’s Tai Chi for Health programs are proven to help improve balance, flexibility, and posture. These programs are proven to reduce the risk of falls by 70%.
Each class begins with gentle Qigong warm ups and breathing exercises, followed by Tai Chi movements (forms) each week. No special equipment is required — just comfortable clothing, shoes, patience and an open mind.
Meeting times per week can vary.

Zero Fatalities – Parent/Teen Night
Teaching a teen to drive may be frightening, but it’s not as scary as what could happen if you’re not involved in your teen’s driving. Come join us for the upcoming Driver’s Education Parent-Teen Presentation to help your teen learn and exhibit safe behaviors.
Zero Fatalities hosts Parent/Teen Driving Presentations both virtually and in-person at local High Schools. These Zero Fatalities presentations discuss the responsibility each driver has on the road. They focus on the 5 driving behaviors: Drive Focused, Drive Calm, Drive Sober, Drive Alert and Drive Buckled. We encourage parents to be involved with their teens and set clear expectations and limits.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about the Utah Graduated Driver Licensing Laws and tips on teaching your teen to drive safely.
