CIS Baton Rouge Women's Wine & Wellness Screening
Wed, March 29, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:30 PM CDT
To aid in the fight against vascular disease, Cardiovascular Institute of the South will offer free vascular screenings to the Baton Rouge community on Thursday, March 29 from 4:00-6:30 p.m. at the CIS Baton Rouge clinic located at 8401 Picardy Ave.
Free vascular ultrasounds will be offered to test for venous disease. This condition develops when the vein valves become damaged or diseased. Venous disease can cause blood to pool in the legs, making varicose veins visible. Interventional cardiologists, Dr. Amit Patel and Dr. Satish Gadi, will be available to answer questions and provide risk assessments. Additional patient education will also be provided for those interested in learning more about vascular disease.
The event will also include hors d’oeuvres and red wine sampling. This is an opportunity for women to relax and unwind while monitoring their health at the same time.
