Everything you need to know about the Grand Valley Health Fair

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - It's one of the most popular events in Grand Junction, and we have everything you need to know.

The Grand Valley Health Fair is March 18 and 19 from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Central High School, 550 Warrior Way. Organizers say there will be a limited number of blood draws available by appointment on the day. But, if you want to get it done early, you can do so Feb. 14 through 18 from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Community Services Building, 510 29 1/2 Road. You must make an appointment by clicking the link below or calling 211. Registration begins at 8 a.m. Jan. 31

The cost of a blood chemistry test is $30, a PSA is $25 and a blood count test is $15. Remember, you must fast for 12 hours, drink water and take your prescribed medications. Diabetics are not to fast! Those who get an early blood draw will have their results mailed to them, they can then bring them to the Health Fair.
