St. Alexius Offers Free Screenings for Go Red Day

Posted: Updated:

St. Alexius offered free screenings for vascular disease today as part of their "Go Red Day" celebration.

Over 100 people signed up to get 3 different screenings.

One for blockages in the neck, another for the legs, and an ultrasound to detect aneurysms in the stomach.

The screenings take about 15 minutes all together.

"Screenings are good in the sense that sometimes we can catch something that they may be walking around with that they don't even know they have. If we can catch it early enough, there's a chance we can treat it or they just have to make some lifestyle changes to try and prevent these things from happening in the future," St. Alexius Nurse Sandy Tschosik said.

The St. Alexius in Mandan will offer wellness screenings for $20 on February 26th from 1:00 to 4:00p.m.
