2019 HEALTH FAIRS

Take care of your health! 

Thank you to all who participated in our 2019 Health Fairs! They were a wonderful success and we could not make it possible without members of our community like YOU! A big thank you to all of our volunteer staff who helped in blood draws, registration, screenings, information stations and more. We are honored to serve the Roaring Fork Valley year after year.

Check back for information about our 2020 Health Fairs in the coming months.

A Note About Lab Screenings
By registering for these laboratory tests, you acknowledge the screening results provided are preliminary. Results could fail to detect abnormalities that might be found with more definitive screenings; or it might detect abnormalities that would be found normal with further testing. To confirm a medical condition, an examination by your personal healthcare provider is always recommended.
