Fall health fairs are underway
September 1, 2018
September is jam-packed with lots of great health fair choices in your local community.
Alaska Health Fair events offer free health screenings, health and safety education, plus 11 affordable, comprehensive and private blood tests (starting at $20). 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.
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 visit http://www.alaskahealthfair.org for the complete test roster, seasonal schedule, occasional updates, frequent announcements and monthly newsletters on health related topics.
Each of these events is free and open to the public.

We need non-medical and medical volunteers, plus experienced volunteer phlebotomists, to help us meet our mission, vision and core purpose to serve all Alaskans. Time volunteered for health fairs meet continued competency requirements for RN license renewal. We would also love and need your support at the office in both Anchorage and Fairbanks. Check out our website at 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. You’ll receive an immediate confirmation email and an event email, about two weeks out, telling you what we have you doing, where and when for each event you selected.
