Ask a Medical Question and Get a Referral
this station provides you with the opportunity to speak one-on-one with a health professional and ask questions about any health issue concerning you or your family. During this session the health professional may review your overall health fair results, make recommendations for further evaluation, set realistic goals with the individual, and provide referrals and resources for more information and/or education. (FREE)

Blood Chemistry Screening (Blood Draw)

This screening provides baseline information on 28 levels including:

  • Cholesterol
  • Glucose (screens for diabetes)
  • Thyroid
  • Kidney
  • Heart disease
  • and more!
This screening can help you and your doctor monitor your health and prevent health issues from becoming emergencies. Information from this screening can also be used to complete your employers' Health Risk Assessments (HRA). Based on the most current research findings, the 9Health Fair Medical Advisory Committee has determined that fasting is not required (optional) for blood screenings. People with diabetes should not fast. Check with your medical provider for specific recommendations. You are encouraged to drink plenty of water and continue to take prescription medications. (Cost: $35.00)


Blood Count Screening (Blood Draw)
This screening gives you a general picture of your overall health by checking your white blood cells, hematocrit, hemoglobin levels, and blood-clotting abilities. Your body's ability to fight infection, anemia, liver disease and certain cancers can be discovered with this screening. (Cost: $20.00)

Blood Pressure Screening
Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). Blood pressure can fluctuate with exercise, injury, illness, and emotional reactions. Your blood pressure should not exceed 119/79. Pulse Screening is primarily measured on the participant's wrist. The pulse corresponds to each beat of the heart. The normal number of pulse beats per minute in the average adult varies from 60 to 80, with fluctuations occurring with exercise, injury, illness and emotional reactions. (FREE)

Colon Cancer Screening Kit
This take-home/mail-in kit checks for human blood in the stool. Also, learn about preventing colorectal cancer, one of the most preventable cancers, and current recommendations for further screening, including who/when should get a colonoscopy. Please click here for more information about colorectal cancer provided by the Colorectal Cancer Taskforce. 
(Cost: $25.00)


Foot Screening
This screening identifies foot problems such as corns, calluses, bunions, blisters, skin conditions, plantar warts and nerve and vascular issues. People with diabetes are vulnerable to nerve and vascular damage that can result in poor circulation and poor healing of foot sores and ulcers. Taking good care of your feet is very important in your overall health and wellness. (FREE)

Height/Weight/Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening
This screening provides you with your Body Mass Index (BMI), using your height, weight and waist measurement to identify your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. BMI is considered reliable for assessing obesity. It does not take into account a person's fat-to-muscle ratio (muscle takes up space but weighs more than fat). Therefore, it is not a reliable measure for athletes or highly physically active participants.(FREE)

Hemoglobin A1c Screening (Blood Draw)
A1C is a blood screening that screens for diabetes by measuring your average blood sugar control for the past 2 to 3 months. For people with diabetes it indicates how well your diabetes treatment plan is working. (Cost: $30.00)

Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) (Men Only Blood Draw)
The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recently recommended against routine screening of men with the PSA test.  Please speak to your healthcare provider if you have questions. PSA is a blood screening that measures a protein that is only produced by the male prostate gland. Elevations of PSA may occur in men with non-cancerous prostate diseases or prostate cancer. A normal PSA level does not entirely exclude the possibility of prostate cancer. A prostate/testicular screening is strongly encouraged in conjunction with PSA screening. (Cost: $30.00)

Skin Screening
This screening provides a check for skin cancer and other skin problems. The screener may look at your scalp, face, neck, arms, hands, upper chest, back and legs. (FREE)

Spinal Screening

The purpose of this screening is to identify any problems with your spinal alignment and educate you about the importance of proper spinal alignment for a healthy body. (FREE)
