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. This course does NOT teach how to draw blood or award any type of certification.
