BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General (BRG) will host a series of free vein screenings starting in February. Vein health is often overlooked -- especially if there are no cosmetic symptoms like varicose or spider veins -- but if left untreated you could have a higher risk of developing serious issues like blood clots and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

BRG’s board-certified vein care experts will perform a brief exam, discuss your symptoms, and perform an ultrasound to take a look at the superficial veins in the legs. The screenings are free, but participants should reserve a spot here.

The screenings will be held each month from 4-5:30pm on BRG’s Bluebonnet campus:

  • Tuesday, February 20
  • Tuesday, March 19
  • Thursday, April 25
  • Wednesday, May 22
  • Tuesday, June 18
  • Tuesday, July 23

If you have experienced any of the below conditions, you are a good candidate for a vein screening:

  • Swelling
  • Ulcers
  • Varicose veins
  • Spider veins
  • Blood clots
  • DVT
