Gunnison Valley Health Wellness Events

Gunnison Valley Health will once again be sponsoring community health fairs in Crested Butte and Gunnison in 2016. Each year Gunnison Valley Health provides low-cost blood tests and complimentary screenings (such as blood pressure, body mass index and bone density) as part of the Wellness Fairs. The goal is to provide community members with information that will help improve general health status and identify conditions that may require the attention of a physician.

Early blood tests are available at both locations in an effort to reduce blood draw wait lines at the Wellness Fairs. Community members may register for an early blood draw in Crested Butte or Gunnison prior to the associated Wellness Fair. We encourage early blood test participants to attend the following Wellness Fair for a complimentary Physician review of their personalized result booklet and partake in other important health screenings.

**NOTE! New this year - Personalized Result Booklets!

These personalized booklets including your test results will be mailed to your home in 2016 for both Early Blood Draws and Wellness Fairs.

These booklets will provide your test results as well as:

  • Tips that can serve as a guide for improving or maintaining your overall wellness
  • A quick, easy-to-understand Medical Summary Report to share with your doctor
  • Highlighted areas where you should focus on improvement
  • Space to jot down notes or questions about your personal health goals
