9Health Fairs and Preventive Health
For 40 years, 9Health Fairs have been held in a variety of locations, including churches, schools, medical facilities and even large event spaces like the Pepsi Center. Each 9Health Fair location is unique in terms of additional offerings that are needed within their communities.
Although there is a wide variety of 9Health Fair locations, it is important to note that 9Health offers all of its blood screenings at all locations. The Blood Chemistry screening is $35 and it 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.
In addition to the affordable health screenings that are available at all locations, many 9Health Fair locations will also offer free screenings. The free screenings vary by location depending on the availability of specialized medical professionals who are able to volunteer.
Some of the free screenings that may be offered at a 9Health include – Ask A Medical Question, Bone Health, Lung Function, Bone Density, Sleep Apnea, and Stress Management Screenings. There are approximately 22 free health screenings that may be offered at a 9Health Fair. To be sure what will be offered at a specific location, visit Find A Fair today.
