Mission


9HEALTH FAIR'S MISSION is to promote health awareness and to encourage individuals to assume responsibility for their own health.

 

WE ARE an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1979. Our story is the story of people working together to provide free and low-cost health screenings and education for 126,000 men, women and children a year. To accomplish this achievement approximately 19,000 volunteers organize three programs:

CommunityEvery April approximately 100,000 men and women learn their cholesterol and other critical health numbers at a 9Health Fair community site; 2,300 women receive a free Pap Smear Screening; 25,000 men receive Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) screenings. In total 9Health Fair provides 250,000 free and low-cost health screenings at approximately 170 sites in 48 of Colorado’s 64 counties -- 2009 is our 30th consecutive year.
