Great volunteer experiences are available with Alaska Health Fair
Local health fairs in February
February 1, 2020
Alaska Health Fair depends on volunteers from all walks of life (both medical and non-medical); and we consider these giving and supportive individuals to be the “blood that flows” through and gives our agency its life. Come help save a life and help people connect with important services, perform health screenings, educate at a health station, or provide much needed supportive services.
As a 40-year old non-profit and member of three United Way agencies statewide, Alaska Health Fair, Inc. works with a limited budget. We depend on people who can commit to volunteering to support local community and worksite events, with dozens of health or educational stations and supportive options to choose from. To check out our spring 2020 schedule, go to http://www.alaskahealthfair.org and look for the event that fits your needs. Select the “volunteer tab” at the top of our main webpage and follow the directions to get to the online application; where you can review the entire community and worksite schedule along with the types of things you can do to help our events and office run professionally and smoothly.
If you have questions or need help completing an application, call (907) 278-0234 in Anchorage or (907) 374-6853 in Fairbanks.
