Free Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening set for November 10th

Get a free ultrasound that may save your life.

If you are male over age 60, female over age 60 with risk factors or over 50 with a family history of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), you may be at risk for AAA.

AAA is among the top 13 leading causes of all deaths in the U.S. and the third leading cause of sudden death in American men. Males, specifically Caucasians, and those who have a history of smoking, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries,
high cholesterol or family history of AAA are most at risk.

If an aneurysm is discovered before it ruptures, death may be prevented.
