Vascular disease, involving an abnormal condition of the blood vessels outside the heart, can affect anyone. Some circulation problems, like varicose and spider veins, aren't life-threatening. Others, like deep vein thrombosis and peripheral artery disease, can be. If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or a family history of stroke or vascular illness, you may be at increased risk for vascular disease.

Catholic Health is sponsoring a free* dinner program titled, "Oh, So Vein! How Vascular Health is Connected to How You Feel," from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, at Classics V Banquet and Conference Center, 2425 Niagara Falls Blvd., Amherst.

The community is invite to join a panel of Catholic Health vascular experts (including Paul Anain, M.D.; Gregory Clabeaux, D.O.; Aimee Swartz, M.D.; and Roger Walcott, M.D.) for dinner and a conversation about vascular disease. They'll discuss the various conditions and symptoms, how to reduce one's risk, and the latest screening and treatment options available. There will also be time to get questions answered.

"Oh, So Vein!" is free* and open to the public. A complimentary dinner will be served. Reservations are required by calling Catholic Health's HealthConnection at 716-447-6205.

*Catholic Health invites area residents to attend up to three free dinner programs per calendar year. After that, admission for each program is $20 and includes a three-course dinner.
