Free Stroke Prevention (carotid artery) Screenings

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

Free

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.
