Alaska Health Fair was founded on the dream of a physician who believed that the road to longevity rests in healthy lifestyles, which develop, in part, through education and screenings.
Alaska Health Fair has been serving Alaskans for generations, since 1980. We are the providers of the Original Health Fair, a unique event model where Alaskans can access free health education, screenings, and tests. Around 35,000 people attend our events in Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks and 50 other communities each year.
Health Fairs offer:
- Privacy and Security of Your Test Results:
Alaska Health Fair does not use electronic health record systems and is not a member of any Health Information Exchange programs. We do not share our client information with insurance companies, health management organizations, or anyone else. When you do your tests with us, results go directly to you. You can keep them private or share them with your doctor, at your discretion.
- Preventative Screenings:
Blood pressure, height and weight, vision screenings, oral cancer screening, and special screenings like skin cancer, podiatry, chiropractor, etc.
- Health Education:
We have hundreds of health education learning centers, blue boards, displays, brochures, games, and other resources, available at no cost.
- Affordable Blood Tests:
Chemistry/Hematology profile, 27 tests including CBC, CMP, LIPIDS; TSH – Thyroid Stimulating Hormone; PSA – Prostate Specific Antigen; Vitamin D; A1C-non-fast glucose; and, Blood Typing.
Alaskans love our Health Fairs because:
- It saves time!
Attend one event and accomplish multiple health screenings and tests.
- It saves money!
Most of the health screenings are completely free. Alaskans love our comprehensive blood panel test because it is quick and affordable. It costs just $45 vs. $250 or more at the lab.
- It’s doctor-approved!
Our volunteers are licensed and experienced medical professionals. You can take your testing results to any doctor.
- We are 100% local and have been serving Alaskans for more than 35 years.
Every dollar goes towards life-saving screenings and tests for Alaskans.
We are looking for volunteers to help organize and deliver Health Fairs and help with a variety of tasks in our Anchorage and Fairbanks offices…
