Wine & Wellness: Free ABI and EKG Screenings
February 26 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM UTC-6
Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) is hosting a Wine and Wellness event featuring free cardiovascular screenings on
Wednesday, February 26 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at 8401 Picardy Avenue in Baton Rouge.
Guests will receive a complimentary electrocardiogram (EKG) and ankle brachial index (ABI) screenings. An EKG is a painless test that records the electrical signals of the heart. The screening can detect blockages, the thickness of the heart wall, past heart attacks and more. An ABI simple, painless exam is used to test the blood flow in the legs to determine risk of vascular disease. Results will be reviewed on site by CIS Interventional Cardiologist, Dr. Niksad Abraham. The event will also include hors d’oeuvres and red wine tastings.
Risk factors of vascular disease include family history, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as smoking, being overweight or being inactive.
Registration is required.
Please call (985) 873-5058 for more information.
