9Health Fair just around the corner


The opportunity for a comprehensive check of your health in a convenient setting is just around the corner, in the form of the annual 9Health Fair.

The event offers more than 20 free and eight low-cost health screenings and is open to anyone 18 and older.

Pagosa Springs’ fair is scheduled for April 6 at Pagosa Springs High School.

New tests being unveiled at select 9Health Fair locations this year are a Gluten Sensitivity screening ($45) and a Hepatitis C screening ($25). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently recommended a one-time test for Hepatitis C for anyone born from 1945-1965.
