Alaska health fairs are springing up

March is a busy month for all Alaskans and spring is just around the corner, so many of us are experiencing “spring fever”. Mother Nature gives us little hints that we don’t have long to wait, such as increasing daylight, warmer temperatures, more outdoor gatherings. Then, she mixes the wonderful prospect of seeing more friends and family as we get out and about with spring thaw, greener pastures and wildlife returning.

Alaska Health Fair asks that you make or take time to see to your own and other family members’ health needs before you get busy with your wonderful outdoor summer season. We continue to add new information to our website as communities and worksites choose dates, so check back frequently. See the current schedule at
