"I’m proud to be part of the foundation that brought 9Health Fair to Colorado communities. It gives me a great sense of purpose, particularly in the rural communities. I’m the lucky one. I get back far more than I give."

As a native to Colorado, Esther served as site coordinator for the Department of Human Services Food Stamp Office 9Health Fair for three years. During those three years, she also participated in the 9Health Fair screenings and learned she had high cholesterol and high triglycerides. Since then, she has worked with her primary care provider to manage these concerns. Esther now sits on the 9Health Fair Community Involvement Committee (CIC). Esther says her favorite thing about 9Health Fair is that it is for everybody, whether you have insurance or not.

July 2014:  Hydration Station

 (Graphic loading...)

You may be surprised to learn that adequate hydration for an average healthy adult living in a mild climate is nine 8-ounce cups for women and thirteen cups for men.  Mayo Clinic reminds us that the popular eight 8-ounce cups of water per day really should be reworded to “drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid per day.”  It does not all have to come from water however.  All fluids count towards your daily amount.  For instance, we tend to eat twenty percent of our water intake.  Fruits and vegetables such as grapefruit, bell peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes are all over 90% water and excellent sources of needed fluids, not to mention valuable nutrients.
