Two upcoming screenings offered through Community Healthcare System will give attendees immediate results about possible blockages in their arteries and veins.

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) screenings will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Sept. 21 at St. Catherine Hospital, 4321 Fir St., East Chicago, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 2 at Community Stroke & Rehabilitation Center, 10215 Broadway, Crown Point.                             

PVD is a common vascular condition that occurs when veins or arteries are narrowed or blocked, usually due to a buildup of plaque, eventually leading to inadequate blood supply to the limbs and/or organs. The screening involves checking a person’s arteries and veins in the legs for signs of blockages.

Registration is required for these free screenings. Call 219-836-3477 to register.
