November health fairs
Alaska Health Fairs, Inc. winds up its fall series of health fair events this month, featuring free health screenings and education, low cost blood tests and more. These tests can help you learn about your health and detect potential problems early, when treatment or changes in personal habits can be most effective. The test results give you and your health care provider important information about your physical condition and vital organ functions.
A complete and comprehensive chemistry/hematology test is available for only $45 and panels 27 different tests for conditions ranging from diabetes, kidney and liver function, thyroid, prostate, bone metabolism and much more. (You should fast for 12 hours prior to this test.)
There are also tests to check Vitamin D level and, new this year, a blood type test ($20). Test results are mailed to you in approximately two weeks.
Unless another phone number is listed, for more information on the events below, call (907) 278-0234 (Anchorage number) or visit http://www.alaskahealthfair.org.
