Some of you have heard about a 9Health Fair*, but many locals are still unaware of 9Health and the benefits of attending a 9Health Fair!
9Health Fairs and Preventive Health
For 40 years, 9Health Fairs have been held in a variety of locations, including local churches, schools, medical facilities and community centers. Each 9Health Fair location is unique in terms of additional offerings that are needed within their communities.
Although there are many 9Health Fair locations, 9Health offers blood screenings at all locations. The Blood Chemistry screening is only $35 and evaluates 28 different health measures (i.e., cholesterol, glucose, kidney and liver function, etc.)
No matter what blood screening you select, there will be a medical professional available to draw your blood and send the samples to Quest Laboratories for testing. Fortunately, you do not have to fast prior to your blood draw, so you can go ahead and eat your breakfast prior to attending your 9Health Fair.
Free health screenings are also offered and vary by location depending on the availability of specialized medical professionals who are able to volunteer. Ask A Medical Question, Bone Health, Lung Function, Bone Density, Sleep Apnea, and Stress Management Screenings are some of the free screenings. There are approximately 22 free health screenings that may be at a 9Health Fair. To be sure what will be offered at a specific location, visit Find A Fair today.
