HealthFair 11 Community

Health Fair 11 Community is an ambitious and unique program that reaches out to people at the grassroots level. Our team of nurses and community health workers provide basic screenings: blood pressure, glucose & cholesterol checks, and BMI (body mass index) measurements. Screenings are performed onboard our Healthmobile, under pop-up tents, or inside community-based facilities.

Our goal is to improve the health of people by providing them with free health screenings, consultation, and educational resources. By bringing services directly to the people ‘where they are at’, Health Fair 11 Community is helping people re-engage with their health journey.

Our work is accomplished with partner organizations that share our vision of creating healthier communities through collaborative outreach. Support for Health Fair 11 Community comes from UCare, Medtronic Foundation, and KARE 11 TV.
