"My husband and I attended the 9Health Fair in April of 2004 at the Susan M Duncan YMCA in Arvada. We had gone through most of the stations and were on our way out when we saw the line for skin screenings. It was shorter than usual so we decided to stop and get checked. Thank GOD we did. I was checked by the doctor who noticed a dark freckle on my left arm and a spot on my face; she recommended that both areas be checked by my doctor. I had the freckle on my arm removed and sent off to the lab. It was melanoma! It was .3mm deep so it was caught early. I will have to manage this for the rest of my life but now that I am educated, it will help me through any future incidents. While my doctor had a watch on this freckle, it was the 9Healthfair that recommended further inspection and treatment and may have saved my life. I will always be thankful to the 9Health Fair.”

"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."

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.
