Many of you have been out catching fish this summer, one of the healthiest foods that is found in our wonderful state. Others might have been catching up on household or honey-do projects, sleep, sunshine, family, vacations and more. Now, we want you to focus on catching up on your health needs, which might be considered a rare catch, indeed.

We offer dozens of community events and a number of office events that are open to the public each health fair season.

The fall 2022 community and office draw schedules are now posted on our website at www.alaskahealthfair.org. Our worksite events are private employee health fairs and are not advertised for the public on our website.

We are ramping back up to our traditionally busy schedule with exhibitors and screeners (when safety and space permit).

Take note that Alaska Health Fair has been keeping our test pricing affordable throughout the current financial turbulence. Our comprehensive blood tests are offered at all Alaska Health Fair events and are an amazing catch for anyone’s budget.

Did you know that Alaska Health Fair events are supported by hundreds of volunteers and exhibitors, Alaskans like you? Both medical and non-medical volunteers are always welcome. A variety of tasks are available, both at health fairs and at the office. Visit http://www.alaskahealthfair.org, click on “Volunteer” on the top bar.

Of special interest to nurses: Volunteering for Alaska Health Fair meets continued competency requirements for RN license renewal.

Exhibitor space is always free at health fairs. The fairs offer an excellent opportunity for local care providers, health and wellness nonprofits, agencies and businesses and others to connect with people in their community on important health topics and build awareness about their mission. Certain requirements apply. For more information, please visit our website, click on “Exhibit” on the top bar.

To register and stay informed on our health fairs, visit our website, check out our Facebook page, or call one of our offices: Anchorage, 907-278-0234; Fairbanks, 907-374-6853; Juneau, 907-723-5100. 

We hope your summer ends on a positive note, and we wish you a wonderful start to Alaska’s fast-approaching fall.

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