    I’m very thankful for the 9 news health fair and the affordable tests given. I have been to the fair for the past three years and find they are very well organized and good at what they do. The blood draw has people of various degrees of experience but my experience has been positive and there was a experienced person there to help if needed. Thank you nine news and all the people that take their time to make this happen.

      Me too! It’s a wonderful community outreach project that has helped so many people. Remember to drink plenty of water before you go, as being well hydrated helps make the blood draw process easier. Thanks Gail!

    I have always gotten notification by mail of upcoming 9 Health Fair but seem to have been overlooked this year. Sadly the opportunity has passed. Can I be notified next year of dates and locations please? Thank you, Christie Greer

      You can find the link to locations here and you might want to put a note on your calendar to check early next year, so you don’t miss out. Thank you!
