Health Fair 2022 will be Saturday morning, October 22, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Health Fair is one of the largest, volunteer-driven events in our community.

Both SaddleBrooke One and MountainView have allocated space for this year’s fair. MountainView will now include the ballroom, so there is a need for more volunteers. The commitment is fairly light – 90-minutes on the day of the fair with a short orientation session in September where new volunteers receive training and a free tee shirt. There may still be openings on many teams. Contact Andrea Stephens via email at

The immunization unit by Walgreens and Desert Life Pharmacy will occupy the west end of the ballroom at MountainView. Some vaccines require pre-registration.

The University of Arizona pharmacy students will be back to offer free screenings for diabetes, blood sugar, cholesterol, and hypertension. These pharmaceutical students gain important real-world experience under the supervision of their professor. Health fair attendees benefit.

HealthySkin Dermatology, the underwriter of the fair, will conduct free skin cancer screenings at SaddleBrooke One. Every year, someone will discover a suspicious spot or growth that requires timely follow-up with their own dermatologist.

We face the challenges of expansion to make the Health Fair not only bigger, but better. All parking will be at the MountainView Clubhouse. Only golf carts and handicapped stickers can park at SaddleBrooke One due to limited space. Shuttles begin at MountainView and run between the two locations about every 10-minutes.

It’s all at Health Fair 2022. Whether you choose to volunteer or just attend, your morning will be a fun, learning experience.
