Spring into wellness with a health fair appointment

Alaska Health Fair’s spring schedule is busy providing services to Alaskans. Find current dates at http://www.alaskahealthfair.org and check back frequently, as the schedule is fluid. We continue to add new dates as they come available and make changes as needed.

We are following our approved essential services plan and all COVID-19 preventative measures; and helping Alaskans to stay healthy. We are also looking for volunteers that can provide registration, phlebotomy and supportive services; so let us know if you’re interested.

Anchorage and Fairbanks hold office draw appointments many times per month. All dates are posted on the website under your Alaska region.

There are also special March events being held in the following communities and they are also offered by appointment only. Check the website for more details:

Palmer Depot, March 2 and 3

Wasilla Area Senior Center, March 13

Anchorage First Presbyterian Church, March 24 and 25

Make an appointment

We continue to follow our appointment-based model. To make a blood test appointment, follow these easy steps:

Go to http://www.alaskahealthfair.org and find the program that serves your region; pick the city and date you’re interested in, then select the “Make Appointment” button on that line.

The system will walk you through a few questions so you can quickly schedule your own appointment.

You’ll receive a confirmation and reminders from our scheduling system, Calendly, so check your junk mail if you don’t see it immediately.

You’ll also have the ability to change or cancel your appointment from that same confirmation, shown at bottom of the confirmation email.

If you have problems getting registered for an appointment, give our local office a call for assistance: Anchorage 907-278-0234, Fairbanks 907-374-6853 and Juneau 907-723-5100.

Host on location

If you are a community or worksite that’s interested in hosting a “by appointment only” venue, just reach out to those locations, as we would love to bring these efficient services to those that matter most in your world.

Take time to take care of yourself, as it is up to you to meet your personal health needs.

We have an easy to remember motto: “It’s Your Health — Take Care of It.”

Sharon Phillips is the Tanana Valley/Northern Region program director for Alaska Health Fair, Inc.
