To honor local heroes, Premier Vascular and Vein Center in Knoxville, is offering free vascular screenings for Veterans, Police, Fire, and Rescue Personnel ages 50 and older on Saturday, November 4th, 2023, from 8am – 12pm.

The screening includes a simple vascular ultrasound that will check for 3 kinds of dangerous vascular disease: carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and peripheral arterial disease.

“A lot of people may not realize they have vascular disease and untreated vascular disease can lead to deadly stroke and aneurysms,” explains Premier Vascular Surgeon Dr. Deanna Nelson. “We want to help those heroes who protect everyday us be proactive when it comes to their vascular health. That’s why we wanted to do these free vascular screenings for our veterans, fire, police and first responders.”

The screening is free, but you must reserve and schedule a spot beforehand. Call (865) 588-8229 or register online at:
