Alaska Health Fair is taking a summer break


July 1, 2021 | View PDF

Alaska Health Fair, Inc. takes an extended break twice a year – after each active and heavy duty health fair season. We do this to provide our few paid staff, plus our dedicated and cherished volunteers a longer period to take their own vacations. These breaks have become even more important as we’ve worked almost non-stop through COVID. Though we are not offering blood draw dates in July, we are busy closing out the spring season and looking forward to the upcoming fall season.

Our summer break is now in full swing, so you may have difficulties reaching a staff person at the Anchorage or Fairbanks offices. A staff person is usually in the office for limited hours and we try to check email, snail mail and voice mail at those times. We ask you to be patient if you reach out to us during these breaks, as it may be a few days before we respond during our slowed down period.

The best way to stay informed of dates that might be available for your choosing is to sign up for our newsletter at You’ll be the first to get the information that includes the new dates for late summer and fall offerings. You’ll also receive our health newsletters, seasonal schedules, announcements, agency updates and more.

The best ways to stay informed include: Sign up for our newsletter; catch us on Facebook; visit; read August’s Senior Voice, hard copy edition or online at

We thank everyone that has supported us through giving donations of materials, money or time; getting your blood taken through our agency; providing local sponsorships; volunteering at our office or local events. Our agency would not be here without you.

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