Everyone make sure to get ready as we will be participating again at the 9Health Fair on Saturday, 11/17/18, at the Denver Indian Center (4407 Morrison Rd. Denver, CO 80219). The fair offers our patients and our community a chance to engage with our clinic, community agencies, and other clinics/providers to obtain free/lower-cost screenings.
This year there are many screenings available, ranging from vision and dental to screenings for rheumatoid arthritis and BMI (body mass index). There are a number of low-cost blood screenings available too, such as a comprehensive chemistry panel, which assesses your liver and kidney function, electrolytes, blood sugar, thyroid function, and cholesterol levels as well as tests assessing your complete blood count, vitamin B12 and vitamin D levels, and hemoglobin A1c level (this measures your average blood sugar over the past few months). There are also booths where you can ask a pharmacist or a medical provider questions on a range of topics of interest to you.
This is a great opportunity to get more informed about your health and engage further with our clinic and community. More information can be found at www.9healthfair.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
