It’s time to mark your calendars for the 2014 Pagosa Springs 9Health Fair. This year’s 9Health Fair will be held on Saturday, April 5, from 7 a.m.-noon at the Pagosa Springs High School.

Online registration is now available for participants of the Pagosa Springs 9Health Fair. You must register online at least 48 hours prior to Saturday, April 5, by going to a Fair. There is information and specific instructions on the website as to how to preregister online for the blood screenings and colorectal kits offered at the Pagosa Springs 9Health Fair.

As in past years, there are four basic blood screenings available to all participants which include blood chemistry, vitamin D, blood cell count, and hemoglobin A1c. In addition, a PSA blood screening is offered to men only.

You may also purchase the take home colorectal kit, which screens for colon cancer. Look for detailed information regarding the low cost screenings in future articles in The Pagosa Springs SUN, as well as updates about the other free screenings and education that will be offered at the Pagosa Springs 9Health Fair.

The 2014 Pagosa Springs 9Health Fair is pleased to be partnering with the Pagosa Springs Medical Center. For more information about the upcoming Pagosa Springs 9Health Fair, please call Caroline Brown at 731-4248.
