Juneau Community Health Fair
Healthy By Choice Not By Chance
Health fairs provide an opportunity to self-reflect. Ask yourself what you want to change and what health goal you can set to achieve. Use this time to seek out information from the classes and exhibitors.
NEW PROCESS! Be aware we are piloting a process improvement to get people out of lines and into the classes and time to enjoy exhibitors. You can expect the change at the blood draw line. You will receive your paper work with a number on the folder, fill out your form, get your blood pressure checked, then the blood payment/ registration table. At the blood line, you will be called by number so listen to the woman on the loud speaker. While you await your number, visit one of the exhibitors or go to one of the 45 minute classes. (Schedule below. Get an initial from each exhibitor/class you visit and you will be eligible for prizes contributed by community businesses. More info at the health fair!
