Spring health fairs are in full swing
March 1, 2019
Alaska Health Fair events offer free health screenings, health and safety education, plus 11 affordable blood tests and so much more. These tests and screenings 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 March. Everyone is welcome at these events. 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 our blood tests, the seasonal schedule, occasional updates, monthly announcements, great articles on health related topics and our monthly newsletters.

Schedule your own fair
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 with and walk you through what our statewide non-profit can offer your agency and its employees, all conveniently located at your worksite.
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 AHF meets continued competency requirements for RN license renewal. We would also love 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. We thank all of our wonderful volunteers, exhibitors and local site coordinators for their tireless work to make our events worthy of your efforts to improve on your overall health.
