Local hospitals to host 9Health fairs
by Terri Wiebold
For more than 25 years, Colorado’s largest non-profit, volunteer-driven health fair program has been promoting health awareness and encouraging individuals to assume responsibility for their own health by offering free and low-cost health and educational screenings.
Take time to get checked out. A complete blood chemistry analysis – including heart, kidney, muscle and bone, liver and thyroid functions – will be available for $30. Prostate (PSA) screening will be offered for $25. Other screenings available include: blood pressure, body mass index, bone density, breast/pap, hearing, lung functioning, prostate screening (DRE), skin cancer, stress/life balance and vision. Additionally, participants will be able to talk with health professionals about any questions or concerns.
