9Health Fair Returning to The Medical Center of Aurora and Green Valley Ranch this April

9Health Fair, Colorado's largest nonprofit and volunteer-supported health fair, is returning to The Medical Center of Aurora and Green Valley Ranch this April! TMCA and GVR will be two of the 170 locations offering free and low-cost medical screenings to the people of Colorado. The mission of 9Health Fair is to encourage health awareness and to motivate people to take responsibility for their own health.

For over 20 years, The Medical Center of Aurora has hosted a fair. This spring will mark the third year that our Green Valley Ranch location has also hosted a fair.

The Green Valley Ranch fair will take place on Sunday, April 18th, 2010 (7 a.m. - 12 p.m.) and The Medical Center of Aurora fair will take place on Saturday, April 24th, 2010 (7 a.m. - 12 p.m.).

16 screenings were available at Green Valley Ranch in 2009 and 22 screenings were available at The Medical Center of Aurora. This year new screenings at GVR will be Memory Screenings, Stress Management and Skin Cancer Screenings. Free screenings include Ask a Pharmacist/Talk with a Nurse, blood pressure checks, height/weight and BMI, vision check and nutrition information. Low-cost screenings including colorectal cancer FIT kits, 29-component blood chemistry screenings and PSA tests for men. The Medical Center of Aurora has piloted a few screenings over the years that have become extremely popular, including the colorectal cancer kit.
