  • Ask a Medical Question and Get a Referral
    This station provides you with the opportunity to speak one-on-one with a health professional and ask questions about any health issue concerning you or your family. During this session the health professional may review your overall health fair results, make recommendations for further evaluation, setting realistic goals with the individual, and provide referrals and resources for more information and/or education.
  • Ask a Pharmacist
    Discuss over-the-counter and/or prescribed medications, medication and/or vitamin interactions, vaccinations, osteoporosis & heart problems, medication safety, pharmacy services, smoking cessation and more with a pharmacist.
  • Blood Chemistry $35.00
    This screening provides baseline information on cholesterol, blood glucose, liver, kidneys, thyroid, and more. These screenings can help you and your doctor monitor your health and prevent health issues from becoming emergencies. Information from this screening can also be used to complete your employers’ Health Risk Assessments (HRA). Based on the most current research, fasting is optional for the blood chemistry screening. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER and continue to take your regular medications. Persons with diabetes, should not fast.
  • Blood Count Screening $20.00
    This screening gives you a general picture of your overall health by checking your white blood cells, hematocrit, hemoglobin levels, and blood-clotting abilities. Your body’s ability to fight infection, anemia, liver disease and certain cancers can be discovered with this screening.
  • Blood Pressure Screening
    This screening gives you your blood pressure reading. Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). Blood pressure can fluctuate with exercise, injury, illness, and emotional reactions. Health care professionals check the participant's blood pressure. If the participant's blood pressure falls outside normal ranges, further evaluation by a healthcare provider is encouraged. Your blood pressure should not exceed 119/79. Pulse Screening is primarily measured on the participant's wrist. The pulse corresponds to each beat of the heart. The normal number of pulse beats per minute in the average adult varies from 60 to 80, with fluctuations occurring with exercise, injury, illness and emotional reactions.
  • Children: Ask a Medical Question Get a Referral
  • Children: Blood Pressure
  • Children: Height/Weight/Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Children: Oral
  • Colon Cancer Screening Kit $25.00
    This take-home/mail-in kit checks for human blood in the stool. Also, learn about preventing colorectal cancer, one of the most preventable cancers, and current recommendations for further screening, including who/when should get a colonoscopy.
  • Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)
    Diabetes Prevention Program ( DPP) – Our YMCA partners will have Life Style Coaches available to help participants determine their level of risk for Pre-Diabetes using a Risk Assessment tool. The Coaches will also assist in determining eligibility for a series of FREE DPP classes being offered under a grant.

    Available in case medical assistance is needed.
  • Flu Shots
    Influenza commonly known as the flu vaccine will be available at select sites this fall. Prices will vary depending on which partner organization is offering them.
  • Foot Screening
    This screening identifies foot problems such as corns, calluses, bunions, blisters, skin conditions, plantar warts and nerve and vascular issues. People with diabetes are vulnerable to nerve and vascular damage that can result in poor circulation and poor healing of foot sores and ulcers. Taking good care of your feet is very important in your overall health and wellness.
  • Hand Screening
    Hand Screening
  • Height/Weight/Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening
    This screening provides you with your Body Mass Index (BMI), using your height, weight and waist measurement to identify your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. BMI is considered reliable for assessing obesity. It does not take into account a person's fat-to-muscle ratio (muscle takes up space but weighs more than fat). Therefore, it is not a reliable measure for athletes or highly physically active participants.
  • Hemoglobin A1c Screening $30.00
    THIS IS AVAILABLE AT LIMITED SITES IN 2011. A1C is a blood screening that measures your average blood sugar control for the past 2 to 3 months. The results give you a good idea of whether or not you are at risk for diabetes. For people with diabetes it indicates how well your diabetes treatment plan is working.
  • Lung Function Screening
    This screening will determine if you have breathing issues such as asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and pulmonary fibrosis. The goal of this screening is to measure the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled.
  • Medical Registration Educator
    Each fair must have one or more medical volunteers located in the Registration area assigned as the Medical Registration Educator(s) (MREs). They should be clearly identified as available to answer questions about the screenings offered, and what may be appropriate for their age, gender, personal medical history or family medical history.
  • Oral Health Screening
    This screening identifies clinical signs of tooth and gum disease as well as oral abnormalities, sores, and lesions. Education regarding the importance of oral health to promote overall health, and risk factors for oral diseases are also provided.
  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) (Persons with a Prostate) $30.00
    The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recently recommended against routine screening of persons with a prostate with the PSA test. Please speak to your healthcare provider if you have questions. PSA is a blood screening that measures a protein that is only produced by the prostate gland. Elevations of PSA may occur in persons with non-cancerous prostate diseases or prostate cancer. A normal PSA level does not entirely exclude the possibility of prostate cancer. A traditional manual screening, performed by a health care provider is strongly encouraged in conjunction with PSA screening.
  • Pulse Oximetry Screening
    This is a simple, non-invasive screening that measures the percent of oxygen in the blood. This number is obtained by placing an instrument on the finger which checks the percent of hemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. This instrument can detect low blood oxygen before symptoms occur which can lead to lung and heart problems.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis Screening
    THIS IS AVAILABLE AT LIMITED SITES IN 2017. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the joints. RA affects nearly 1% of people in the U.S.A. and can lead to significant joint destruction and disability. Many researchers are currently working on understanding what causes RA so that it can be prevented. RA is diagnosed when someone has symptoms of pain, stiffness, and swelling in their joints. Additionally, blood tests for autoantibodies help make the diagnosis of RA certain. Antibodies are proteins that the body usually makes to help fight infections; however, in RA, some of these antibodies attack the joints and as a result are called ‘autoantibodies’. Recent studies have shown that autoantibodies appear in the blood years prior to symptoms of RA. By identifying autoantibodies in healthy people, we can better understand what causes RA, predict who might get arthritis in the future, and act to prevent symptoms from developing. This screening project will test the blood of healthy people participating in 9Health Fair for the presence of RA-related autoantibodies. People who have autoantibodies will be given the opportunity to participate in research project at the University of Colorado to learn more about what causes RA and how to prevent it. This screening is free to anyone that has not been previously diagnosed with RA.
  • Spinal Screening
    The purpose of this screening is to identify any problems with your spinal alignment and educate you about the importance of proper spinal alignment for a healthy body.
  • Testosterone $35 for Men $45 for Women
    Testosterone is an androgen, or a sex hormone, produced by both males and females. In males it is produced primarily by the testes, in females, the ovaries account for half of the testosterone in the body. Women have a much smaller amount of testosterone in their bodies compared to men, but testosterone plays an important role throughout the body in both men and women. It affects the brain, muscle mass, fat distribution, the vascular system, energy levels, genital tissues, and sexual functioning. Symptoms of low testosterone in males include, decreased body hair, decreased muscle mass, low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. In women, symptoms of too much testosterone can be irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, development of facial and body hair and a deepening of the voice. Any abnormal value should be discussed with your health care provider to determine the underlying cause of the abnormal value.
  • Type 1 Diabetes Screening for Children
    T1D risk screening. Children 1-18 yo are screened for T1D risk by measuring islet auto antibodies from dried blood spots from a finger stick. Families with children who are confirmed to be at risk will be asked to participate in a study to be monitored for T1D development in hope of preventing life-threatening diabetic ketoacidosis.
  • Vitamin B12 - $20.00
    Vitamin B12, has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and the formation of red blood cells. It is one of eight B vitamins. Lower levels of Vitamin B12 can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced. Pernicious anemia is also caused by low Vitamin B12 .Taking Vitamin B12 usually corrects symptoms that are caused by a low level.
  • Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Screening $45.00
    This screening is used to provide you with a baseline level of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a worldwide problem. Your body requires Vitamin D to absorb calcium and plays an important role in protecting your bone health. Many studies also suggest an association between low Vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of cancers, nerve disease, immune disease and heart disease. Some Vitamin D is produced in your skin when unprotected skin is exposed to sunlight. Otherwise, you can obtain Vitamin D in foods or take Vitamin D in supplement form. Studies have found that many adults have low Vitamin D levels. This screening requires only one blood draw. Results will be included on the same report with your other blood draw results. If you already take Vitamin D you should have a blood level drawn to make sure you are taking enough Vitamin D.
