October is one of our busiest months for health fairs. We continue to provide pre-scheduled, appointment-based services to communities and worksites, and at our Fairbanks office. October community events include Anchorage, Delta Junction, Fairbanks, Houston, North Pole and Valdez and many worksite events. COVID seems to have a mind of its own, and so we continue to work around these ever changing circumstances in our communities, state and nation in a safe and effective manner. We provide important services to all event attendees using solid health, safety and sanitation protocols.

Check out our full schedule at and look for the city of your choice. Due to COVID numbers, our schedule can change on a moment’s notice and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
