9Health Fairs are held in the community by the community throughout Colorado in the Spring and Fall. Each fair provides many no-cost and low-cost screenings. Whether you're pursuing a healthier lifestyle, taking advantage of the affordable screenings or raising your health-related awareness, attending a 9Health Fair offers many benefits for attendees. We empower participants to become informed and make smart, health-related decisions for the future. 9Health Fairs provide the most vital information about your body so you and your physician can ensure you stay on the road of good health. We are celebrating our 40th year in Colorado!
We are the largest volunteer-driven, non-profit health, wellness and prevention effort in the nation. Our mission - raise health awareness and provide people with the tools they need to take responsibility for their health.
In 2018, our 39th year in Colorado, over 43,000 people attended our health fairs. 9Health Fairs were in 40 of 64 Colorado counties and 1 site in Nebraska. High Cholesterol was discovered by 68% of participants and Pre-Diabetes was discovered by 21% of those that had the A1c blood screening. Knowing your levels and monitoring them is an important part of a person's health journey. In addition, many participants had their blood pressure checked, talked to a medical professional about skin cancer and discovered new ways to deal with the stresses in their lives.
Over 2,000 participants received an alert call from our volunteer medical staff informing them to seek immediate medical attention. If they did not have a primary care doctor, we guided them to a listing of low-cost clinics near them.
Over 2,000 free blood screening vouchers were distributed to low income participants through our health fair sites or in partnership with community resource organizations.
