Let 9Health Fair help you take charge of your health. When you attend a 9Health Fair, you have access to a variety of medical screenings, such as cholesterol and blood pressure checks just to name a couple, that can provide you with important details on your overall health. Think of 9Health Fair as a supplement to your annual checkup. It’s a great opportunity for you to have your questions answered by our medical professionals and on the right track to a healthy lifestyle.
The site also features health apps you may find beneficial, along with access to our health expert and 9Health Fair Vice President, Marte Meyer. “I am really excited to be a part of this,” says Meyer. “Prevention has been a big part of my clinical career, and I look forward to working on this in a way that can help people integrate prevention into their everyday lives.”
Sleep is crucial to your overall health. First of all, it’s what helps your brain to function properly and improves your ability to learn new things. Resources in this pillar will help you get the most out of your sleep. Dr. John Torres is our designated sleep expert. If you have questions, you can contact him here and he’ll help point you in the right direction to a better night’s rest.
A healthy diet is essential to your overall well-being. Food is what gives your body energy, so you want to make sure you’re eating the right foods to energize you throughout the day, not food that’s going to take away your energy.
