Event description

Description

To create awareness about heart disease prevention, CIS is hosting free electrocardiogram (EKG) and carotid ultrasound screenings on Wednesday, August 23 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at CIS Thibodaux (1320 Martin Luther King Dr.).

An EKG is a painless test that records the electrical signals of the heart. The screening can detect blockages, the thickness of the heart wall, past heart attacks and more. A carotid ultrasound is a painless imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of the inside of your carotid arteries. A carotid ultrasound is performed to test for narrowed carotid arteries, which increase the risk of stroke and heart disease. Screening results will be reviewed onsite, and CIS providers will be providing personal health risk assessments. Chad Dugas, MD, and Lindsey Doucet will be providing guests with heart health and smoking cessation related educational presentations. The event will also include hors d’oeuvres, red wine samplings. This is an opportunity to relax and learn more about heart disease risks and prevention.

Risk factors of cardiovascular disease include family history of heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as smoking, being overweight or being inactive.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED!
