Vascular Aware

Vascular Aware

Eight million Americans have Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). A common problem is that most people mistake symptoms of PAD for something else, and PAD often goes under-diagnosed by health care professionals. People with PAD are at higher risk for heart attacks and stroke, and left untreated can lead to gangrene and amputation.

After taking the Vascular Aware health assessment you may even qualify for a free follow-up consultation and free email newsletters with heart healthy lifestyle tips. All of your information is kept confidential. At the end of the assessment, if you are at risk, you will be contacted about a free follow-up screening and consultation session with a UNC REX clinician.

The screening consists of:

  • fasting blood cholesterol and glucose test
  • blood pressure check
  • height, weight, waist circumference and BMI (Body Mass Index)
  • consultation with a clinician

The follow-up screening is held at REX Healthcare's Early Detection Center located throughout Wake County for your convenience.
