9Health Fair

8/24/15



In 1987, 9Health Fair became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. With the sole mission of advancing health awareness and providing people with the tools they need to take responsibility for their own health, and because of the support of 16,000 statewide volunteers, 9Health Fair has helped save thousands of lives by providing free and low-cost health awareness and educational screenings. To date, 9Health Fair is the only program of its magnitude and that has become a community institution as a result of the NHSCVO initiative. Since inception, 9Health Fair has impacted over 1.7 million individuals.

Our program's proven history and consistent quality has earned us unique endorsements from the Colorado Medical Society, Colorado Nurses Association and the Colorado Hospital Association.

Anyone 18 and older can participate in a 9Health Fair. With over 25 screenings available, your 9Health Fair results, along with an explanation on how to read your results, are delivered directly to you within three to six weeks of your visit. Our team of volunteer registered nurses and physicians will contact you within 72 hours of your 9Health Fair visit and, if necessary, provide you with local follow up resources if your results indicate that a critical or alert health situation is occurring.

Attending a 9Health Fair does not replace your regular check-ups with your physician, and you are encouraged to share your results with your primary care physician for further diagnosis and treatment.

Project C.U.R.E.

8/17/15

Healthcare in many developing countries is a global crisis. The severe lack of healthcare disrupts social and economic stability in almost every developing nation. Disease causes nine-out-of-ten preventable deaths in developing nations among children and adults. Millions of children under the age of five die each year from preventable disease, and more than 70% of these deaths occur from pneumonia, diarrhea, measles, malaria and malnutrition.

Founded in 1987, Project C.U.R.E. (www.projectcure.org) has grown to be the largest organization in the world delivering nearly 150 forty-foot ocean freight cargo containers of donated medical supplies and equipment each year. Each project begins with an onsite Needs Assessment to ensure that Project C.U.R.E. delivers the right items to the right people. To date, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief in 133 countries. In addition, Project C.U.R.E. regularly conducts C.U.R.E. Clinics, Helping Babies Breathe trainings and Biomedical Technician Trainings in 40± developing nations.

On average, the value of a Project C.U.R.E. Cargo container is worth $450,000, providing an amazing 20-to-1 "return on investment." Project C.U.R.E. operates Distribution Centers in Denver, Phoenix, Houston, Nashville and Chicago where over 17,000 volunteers sort more than 26,000 types of non-perishable medical supplies and certify medical equipment for shipment abroad. Project C.U.R.E. also operates 15 Collection Centers across the United States. Project C.U.R.E. receives both new and quality used medical items from hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States and medical manufacturers, such as Stryker, Medline, Medtronic, Kimberly-Clark, Steris, and Hill-Rom.

Project C.U.R.E. operates on 1.9% administrative overhead and has earned numerous awards for being the industry leader in international medical donations. Project C.U.R.E. is recognized as a four-star charity by Guidestar and Charity Navigator and was ranked by Forbes as one of the 20 most cost effective nonprofits in the United States.
