Free Stroke Prevention (carotid artery) Screenings at Erie County Auto Bureaus

October 11, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Catholic Health’s Mercy Hospital of Buffalo and Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns have once again teamed up to offer free blood pressure and carotid artery screenings at select auto bureaus across Erie County leading up to World Stroke Day on October 29. As part of this effort, Catholic Health clinicians will be offering free carotid artery screenings – a painless, non-invasive test that uses ultrasound technology to detect blockages in the two large blood vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain. Blockages in these arteries account for up to 75% of strokes and can be treated. The screenings are free, confidential and open to the public.

Upcoming screenings will be held from 9 am to 1 pm at the following DMV Auto Bureau locations:

October 11: Rath Building, 170 Pearl Street, Buffalo 14202
October 16: Cheektowaga/ Depew Auto Bureau, 2122 George Urban Blvd., Depew, NY
October 22: Sheridan Plaza, 2309 Eggert Road, Tonawanda
October 23: Cheektowaga/ Depew Auto Bureau, 2122 George Urban Blvd., Depew, NY
October 29: Sheridan Plaza, 2309 Eggert Road, Tonawanda
October 30: Southgate Plaza, 1088 B Union Road, West Seneca
