March 23, 2018

The Regis University Northwest Denver Campus will transform from classrooms to centers for laboratory draws, health assessments and wellness screenings when the Regis 9Health Fair returns 7 a.m. – noon on Saturday, April 7.

A community health resource for Regis area communities, such as Berkley and Chaffee Park, since 2003, Regis’ fair is run by nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists and therapists from Regis’ Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions. Services include standard blood pressure screenings and heart, skin, foot and vision screenings; stress management; bone density testing; and non-fasting blood draws.

Whether you have a specific screening in mind or would like to visit every station, the Regis 9Health Fair is set up to serve you and your family quickly, and enable you to take charge of your health. The screenings, all of which are free except for the non-fasting blood draws, include:

  • Men and Women’s Health Screenings, which include a prostate and testicular screening or a breast and PAP exam
