As kids go back to school this fall, parents all over Colorado are running around trying to get through the crazy back-to-school checklist we are all familiar with. Among other things, kids need new clothes, new shoes, school supplies, etc. They also typically need to see a healthcare provider for health screenings, sports physicals, and immunizations. The checklist can get overwhelming, not to mention expensive.
Family 9Health Fairs allow you to mark off three important items from your checklist for your children AND yourselves at a price you can afford. Don’t have kids? No problem. Everyone is welcome at a Family 9Health Fair. The back-to-school season gives all of us an annual reminder to get our health checked out in the following ways…
1) Health Screenings:
Family 9Health Fairs offer the following free screenings for children: blood pressure/pulse, height/weight/BMI, asthma control, autism, vision, hearing, cardiovascular, oral health, and scoliosis. Family 9Health Fairs also offer a Children’s Ask a Medical Question/Get a Referral station where you can discuss your health concerns with a medical professional.
9Health Fair also offers numerous and affordable screenings for adults – (please see the list on our Find a Fair page).
2) Sports Physicals:
The Overland High School Family 9Health Fair on October 3, will offer Sports Physicals from 8am until 1pm. If your young athlete still needs a sports physical, please come by and check this important item off your list!
Flu season is just around the corner – protect your family with a flu shot! The majority of Family 9Health Fairs offer flu shots for children, and several fairs offer flu, pneumonia, and Tdap immunizations for adults. (Fees may apply for immunizations.)
This fall, there are nineteen Family 9Health Fairs across the Front Range. The season kicks off on September 19th at the Potter’s House Church of Denver and fairs will then run most weekends through November 21st. Click here for fair locations and dates.
