November is fall season finale for health fairs
November 1, 2017
We are nearing the end of Alaska Health Fair’s fall 2017 health fair season, so check out one of the November 2017 events. They 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 a complete roster of our affordable, comprehensive and private tests check out http://www.alaskahealthfair.org.
For more information, call 907-278-0234 (Anchorage) or 907-374-6853 (Fairbanks). If you’re interested in bringing an Alaska Health Fair event to your place of employment (as dozens of companies do), just give us a call; and we can talk/walk you through what services we can provide your agency’s employees (all conveniently located at your worksite).
We need non-medical and medical volunteers, plus individuals who can draw blood to help us meet our mission, vision and core purpose to serve all Alaskans. We would also love your help at the office in both Anchorage and Fairbanks. Check out our website at http://www.alaskahealthfair.org and select the volunteer tab at the top of the main page. It just takes moments to complete and submit the form to let us know you’re interest in supporting Alaska residents.
