Health fair exhibitors are welcome and valued

Here's the March health fair schedule

 

March 1, 2020



Alaska Health Fair depends on dedicated professionals from various medical, social, health and safety fields who can take time to share their extensive knowledge, skills and abilities with health fair attendees. These individuals share their agency’s mission, vision and core purpose and what services they offer that can help event attendees achieve more balanced, overall and greatly improved physical, emotional, mental and social “health”.

Come help educate and help people to connect with important services, perform free health screenings for your agency, educate at a health station or provide much needed supportive services.

Our 40-year old nonprofit and United Way agency works within a very tight budget to bring health resources, health screenings and blood tests to Alaskan residents and any visitors who want to take part. We depend on important local agencies that can commit to educating community and worksite event participants.  Exhibitors use displays, models, handouts and any bling they have the budget for to educate and engage attendees on their respective health related topic.

To check out our spring 2020 schedule, please go to http://www.alaskahealthfair.org and look for the event that fits your needs and schedule. If you have time to provide health education or free screenings at any event, please select the “exhibitor tab” at the top of our main webpage (below our logo) and follow the directions to get to our online application.

Take advantage of these outreach opportunities to educate with little to no costs involved, as we don’t charge our exhibitors any fees. If you have questions or need help completing an application, please call 907-278-0234 in Anchorage or 907-374-6853 in Fairbanks. We would love to have your involvement.
