The Highland County Health Dept. will host a vascular screening event for patients 50 years of age or older. Screenings will be performed by the Christ Hospital. The non-invasive, painless screenings are effective in detecting three prevalent vascular diseases; carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease, and abdominal aortic aneurysms.
The event will be held on October 23, 24, 29, 30 and 31st at the Highland County Health Department, 1487 North High Street, Hillsboro. The cost of the screening is $60.00. An appointment is required and may be obtained by calling the Health Dept. at 937-393-1941. This is a joint effort by the Highland County Health Department, The Christ Hospital, and Highland District Hospital.
