    Live Long. Live Well.

    ICL, DSU, Intermountain Health and the City of St George are working cooperatively on a project to help members of our community to live long and healthy lives, similar to Blue Zone projects.
    Live Long. Live Well. (Live! for short) is becoming a reality. We are adding new program features as quickly as we can develop them. We launched our first co-sponsored event on June 21st, International Yoga Day. Along with our cosponsors, we provided five different yoga events at Vernon Worthen park. Over 100 people attended.
