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.

“My wife and I have been going to [the] 9Health Fair for many years in several different towns in Colorado, so it plays a big part in our lives. In April of 2003, we went again to have our annual blood screening but this time mine came back a little different. My PSA number came in a little high with a suggestion to make an appointment with my doctor. With further evaluation I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I had no previous symptoms. I was given several options but at my age of 51, surgery was the best for me. As you can see 9Health Fair saved my life. My family and I are so grateful for the services available to all of our communities. 9Health Fair is great and I am looking forward to many more 9fairs.”

COMMUNITY Fairs

Every Spring, people from around the state come together to deliver 9Health Fair's free and low-cost health awareness and educational screenings. Because of this volunteerism, over 100,000 lives are impacted annually. Since 1980, 9Health Fair has affected 1.7 million lives.

Because our mission promotes health awareness and encourages individuals to assume responsibility for their own health, we collaborate with health screening partners and organizations around the state to provide comprehensive health screenings and interactive educational centers at all 9Health Fair sites. This information helps empower participants to become more aware of, and responsible for, their health.

About three to six weeks after a 9Health Fair visit, participants receive detailed information about their results, along with reminders to seek complete diagnosis and treatment from their primary care physician. Participants with critical or alert health results will receive a phone call within 72 hours of their 9Health Fair visit from a volunteer Registered Nurse and/or physician instructing them to seek immediate medical attention.
