May brings finale for spring health fairs
May 1, 2017
Alaska Health Fair’s Spring 2017 health fair season is coming to a close this month, so try and make it to one of the remaining events in your local community.
These events offer free health screenings and education, low cost blood tests and more. The tests can help you learn about your health and detect potential problems early, when treatment or changes in personal habits can be most effective. So take time out of your busy week and join AHF when they bring an event to your local area.
A complete and comprehensive chemistry/hematology test is available for only $45; with 27 different panels for conditions ranging from diabetes, kidney and liver function, to anemia and tissue health, thyroid, prostate, bone metabolism, coronary heart disease and much more. You should fast for 10 to 12 hours prior to this test. No other tests that are offered require fasting, including: Thyroid Function ($35), Prostate Disease ($25), A1C Blood Glucose ($25), Vitamin D level ($50), Celiac Disease ($35), Vitamin B12 ($35) and Blood Typing ($20).
This month’s fairs will be held at the following locations and times. Bring you family, friends and neighbors.
