A free health screening to detect a deadly vascular condition - called abdominal aortic aneurysm will be offered in Tyler on Sat., Oct. 6th.

Early registration is required by calling 866-371-3592.

AAA is a silent killer because there are typically no symptoms - there are more than 1 million people living with AAA and don't know it.

It's the 3rd leading cause of sudden death in men over 60 (it's 3Xs more deadly in women), but a simple ultrasound screening can detect it before it's too late.
