Keeping Colorado Healthy Since 1980

Colorado’s Largest Celebration of Health

Medical Advisory Committee

The Medical Advisory Committee (MAC), exclusive to the 9Health Fair, is comprised of Colorado's top healthcare providers and allied healthcare professionals. These notable and experienced individuals provide high-quality and evidence-based health screenings to our Greater Colorado community. The implementation of MAC contributed to 9Health Fair’s endorsements from the Colorado Medical Society, the Colorado Nurses Association and the Colorado Health and Hospital Association.

The MAC is responsible for creating, reviewing and approving all medical screening protocols and interactive educational center requests. Through quarterly evaluation and follow-up of statistical data and screenings results, the MAC ensures all health screenings meet our strict criteria.

9Health Screening Criteria

  • Sound scientific and medical basis
  • Useful in identifying at-risk individuals or disease in a large population
  • Must promote good health and health education
  • Must be free of commercial or self-promotional interest
  • Screenings can be implemented on an efficient basis
  • Participant information can be appropriately followed-up within the healthcare system

Our screening protocols comply with these stringent criteria and undergo periodic evaluation to ensure practical implementation: they must promote good health and health education of Coloradans, they cannot exist in a vacuum and they must be woven into the fabric of healthcare systems throughout Colorado. The MAC works diligently to involve healthcare providers to ensure quality screenings and follow-up are provided to participants.
