Southcoast Health Systems to offer free vascular screenings at Rosebrook

Oct 19, 2012

Southcoast Health systems will be offering free vascular screenings at 100 Rosebrook Way in Wareham on Monday, November 5 and Monday, November 19 between 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Vascular screenings can detect peripheral artery disease (PAD). The screenings take about twenty minutes, and patients are encouraged to arrive fifteen minutes before their scheduled  procedure.

According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, one in every twenty Americans over the age of 50 has PAD. Smoking, diabetes, and obesity increase the risk of PAD.

Call 800-276- 0103 to schedule an appointment. No walk-ins will be accepted, and appointments are scheduled on a first come first serve basis.
