Fall health fairs are coming to a location near you

Alaska Health Fair’s Fall 2017 health fair season is now in full swing, so check out September event dates by reviewing the Senior Voice monthly edition or the Alaska Health Fair website. Try to make it to one of the fall events in your local community; you’ll find a variety of resources to help meet your family’s health needs and some great community gatherings.

We are in need of volunteers who can help us with our mission, vision and core purpose to serve all Alaskans. Non-medical, medical and individuals who can draw blood. We would also love your help at the office in both Anchorage and Fairbanks. Check out our website and select the volunteer tab at the top of the main page.

Alaska Health Fair, Inc. offers 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. So take time out of your busy week and join AHF when they bring an event to your local area.

 Alaska Health Fairs will be held at the following locations and times during September. For more information, call 907-278-0234 (Anchorage) or 907-374-6853 (Fairbanks); or just visit http://www.alaskahealthfair.org for a complete roster of blood tests, occasional schedule updates, monthly announcements and newsletters on health related topics.
