Health fairs in full swing in October

We are now in the middle of Alaska Health Fair’s fall 2017 health fair season, so check out one of our fast approaching October events. The health fairs offer free health screenings, health and safety education, plus 11 affordable blood tests and other services. These tests can help you learn about your overall health and detect potential problems early, when treatment or changes in personal habits can be most effective.

For more information, call 907-278-0234 (Anchorage) or 907-374-6853 (Fairbanks); or just visit

If you are interested in bringing an Alaska Health Fair event to your place of employment (as dozens of companies do), we can talk/walk you through what services we can provide your agency’s employees, all conveniently located at your worksite.
