FREE Refresher Courses for 9Health Fair Phlebotomy Volunteers!

Refresher courses provide an opportunity for 9Health Fair volunteers with recent blood draw experience to review steps for safe and sterile phlebotomy techniques, and to learn the 9Health Fair protocol, standards and expectations, along with hands-on use of the 9Health Fair approved equipment and supplies.  Students, recent graduates, and medical volunteers who have not been active in the field of phlebotomy for 6 months are highly encouraged to attend a refresher course.

2020 Spring 9Health Fairs Postponed

Amid growing interest in the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

Phlebotomy Refreshers will be rescheduled for a later date.

For the last 40 years, 9Health, our amazing volunteers and partners have helped keep communities across Colorado healthy through preventive care and health awareness. Staying true to our mission, we have made the decision to postpone the spring 9Health Fairs to later this year, amid growing public interest in the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

In the wake of postponing our spring fairs to later this year, we are looking into options that allow 9Health Fair attendees to continue to receive health awareness through alternative options.

We remain committed to our mission of advancing health awareness across Colorado and providing people with the tools they need to take responsibility for their own health.
