9Health Fair…

Volunteers were helping en masse at the 9Health Fair at Meeker Elementary School on Saturday. Above, phlebotomists from all neighboring towns were on hand as were students from the CNCC dental hygiene school and health agencies from throughout the area joined efforts to deal with the roughly 600 people who attended the health fair on Saturday. The fair was sponsored by Channel 9, Pioneers Medical Center, the Rio Blanco Fire Protection District and the Meeker Lions Club. Organizer Christy Atwood of Pioneers Medical Center said, “It was another successful year. I appreciate working with Channel 9 and appreciate all the members of the community taking part.”
Roughly 600 area residents got out in spite of heavy snow Saturday to take part in the annual 9Health Fair. At right, students from the Colorado Northwestern Community College dental hygiene program joined the many other volunteers at the fair, checking blood pressure and oxygen retention.
