Cardiovascular disease is one of the most widespread health issues in the U.S. Every 40 seconds, an adult dies of a heart attack, stroke or related disease – and 20% of them are under 65 years old. Baton Rouge General and Baton Rouge Clinic are hosting a screening event designed to identify signs, symptoms and risk factors of carotid artery disease (narrowing of the carotid arteries), one of the risk factors for stroke. Screenings will include a carotid artery ultrasound along with blood pressure and body mass index checks.

To receive a vascular screening, you must meet the following criteria:

  • 50 years old or older
  • Have not received a vascular screening in the past 1-2 years
  • Price: Free
