KUSA - The 9Health Fair offers basic screenings including, but not limited to blood count, blood pressure, prostate and testicular checks to those ages 18 and up.

These screenings can help detect diseases before they spread.

Fair attendee, Bill Martin, says a health screening at a 9Health fair in 1993 saved his life.

"They found that I had prostate cancer at the time," Martin said. "I had no idea ... I recommend [coming to the fair] highly because otherwise I would not be here."

The Vitamin D test is among one of the screenings. The test is linked to bone health and is commonly suggested for senior citizens. Vitamin D levels can also improve the immune system and muscle strength.

To find a fair near you call 303-698-3799 and for more information visit www.9healthfair.org.
