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 mom and I went to the 2006 9Health Fair at Aims Community College in Greeley, CO. I hadn't been feeling well so my sister-in-law urged me to go.We went on a Sunday, and that Tuesday I got a call from a nurse who informed me that my thyroid level was less than .01 and that I needed to contact my doctor. I did so right away and had further tests run. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid and through additional tests, learned that I was suffering from Graves’s disease. Had I not gone to the 9Health Fair, I believe I still would have been seeking help. I am feeling so much better and on the way to recovery. Thank you 9Health Fair staff and volunteers!!!"

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.
