Jim Goddard, President and CEO of 9HealthFair in Colorado reports: It looks like we will have seen over 85,000 people at this year’s 162 fair sites by the end of May. We piloted the offering of Vitamin D screening and at those nine pilot sites about 20-25% of attendees chose to pay for this new screening. We continue to offer free pap smears (about 2300) along with over 20 other free screenings. We have kept our prices the same now for almost 10 years for the three main screenings for which we charge (blood chemistry; blood count; psa for men). We began offering the new immunochemical colorectal cancer screening take-home kit for a charge in 2008 (about 5-10% of attendees purchase this kit).
Congratulations to Jim, his staff, his Board, and to all the citizens of Colorado who have benefited from these life saving and changing services. For more information contact Jim at: mailto:jim.goddard
