...for helping health fair
Alaska Health Fair Inc. would like to thank each and every volunteer, participant, business, organization, local and statewide sponsor for making the Juneau Public Health Fair an overwhelming success.
Approximately 1,700 Juneau residents attended the 20th anniversary of the Alaska Health Fair at Centennial Hall. Of the total participants, 860 adults chose to have their blood tested for anemia, diabetes, kidney and liver function, bone and tissue disease and coronary heart disease. Over 250 men participated in the Prostate Specific Antigen blood test that assists in early detection of prostate disease. In addition blood pressure, height, weight, vision, hearing, glaucoma and summary and referral screenings numbered over 4,500. Medically-trained professionals found approximately 700 participants to possess some sort of abnormality requiring either personal lifestyle adjustments and/or medical attention.
Health fairs assist people with information to make healthier choices to live longer and in good health. This enormous job is made possible with local support and through the financial support of BP Exploration, National Bank of Alaska, AT&T Alascom, Chevron USA, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Alaska, Williams Alaska, Anchorage Daily News, KTUU television, KTBY television, State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, 98.9 Magic FM, Providence Health System and United Way. Thank you again to everyone who made the Juneau Public Health Fair possible!
