FREE VASCULAR SCREENING

Crofton and Anne Arundel County residents may be eligible for a free vascular screening.

Most of us have heard or read that cardiovascular disease is now the #1 health issue in America, not cancer.  In fact, it’s estimated that half of all Americans will die from complications of atherosclerosis, the root of cardiovascular disease, and millions more will suffer debilitating complications that rob many Americans of a meaningful quality of life.

HeartAccording to Dare to C.A.R.E., a non-profit organization founded by cardiologists associated with Arundel Medical Center and located in Annapolis, one million Americans die of heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular disorders every year in this country – that’s one life every 33 seconds.

There are no symptoms typically associated with vascular disease, but finding out if you have it is fairly easy through non-invasive ultrasounds of carotid arteries in the neck, the aorta in the abdomen, and an evaluation of circulation in both legs.

If you’re over 60 – or if you’re over 50 and have a history of diabetes, high blood pressure or cholesterol, smoking, or family history of cardiovascular disease – you are considered “at-risk” and you’re eligible for FREE SCREENING.

Call 410–573–9483 to schedule an appointment in Annapolis or Bowie, or visit the Dare to C.A.R.E. website to learn more about the screening process, vascular disease, upcoming events, and screening locations.  My husband Larry went for his screening yesterday, and he verifies that it was quick and non-invasive – in fact, he was home within two hours of leaving for his appointment. 

Spread the word… FREE VASCULAR SCREENING.
