Alaska Health Fair Northern Region’s Program Director Sharon Phillips and her team has recently put together a comprehensive health education display at the Noel Wien Library in the Fairbanks North Star Borough. This large lighted display is visible as you enter the main library complex, and is easily viewed through a 12 ½ ft x 6 ½ ft x 2 ft glass enclosed case. The display features three distinct sections of health education:
The first section contains a flag showing Alaska Health Fair’s name and local number, a spring information flier, and a blown up QR code for pre-scheduling a blood test appointment. This section also provides height/weight/bmi and exercise education.
The second section has some of Alaska Health Fair’s health education lending library items, such as blue boards, stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, models, CPR education, and agency brochures.
The third section includes diabetes and nutrition displays, models, and health education. At the bottom of the case, you’ll find reading material such as Senior Voice and Alaska Pulse, which feature written articles, ads, and more about the agency. You’ll also find information about the importance of daily hydration.
Don’t miss this opportunity to view Alaska Health Fair’s comprehensive health education display at the Noel Wien Library. The items you’ll see are just a small sampling of what is available at the agency’s health fairs, where visitors can receive affordable, comprehensive blood tests and free health screenings, as well as health education and exhibitors from various agencies. Take a few moments to benefit from this amazing display!
