Some circulation problems like varicose and spider veins aren’t life-threatening. Others, like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and peripheral artery disease (PAD), can be. If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, a family history of stroke, or are 50 years old or older, you may be at risk.

Catholic Health is hosting a special Facebook Live “Way to Wellness” event, “Oh, So Vein! How Vascular Health is Connected to How You Feel,” from 7-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 29. It will feature Trinity Medical WNY vascular and endovascular center physicians Paul Anain, M.D.; Gregory Clabeaux, D.O.; Aimee Swartz, M.D.; and Roger Walcott, M.D.

The speaker will broadcast live from the 36th floor of Seneca One Tower. They’ll discuss what vascular disease is, signs and symptoms to be aware of, how to reduce risk, vascular conditions from DVT and PAD to varicose and spider veins, and the latest screening and treatment options available. They’ll also answer questions live.

Follow on Facebook at facebook.com/catholichealth to receive a notification when it’s time to join. Those with a question for the physicians can send it in advance through the event listing at chsbuffalo.org/events, or submit it via chat during the event.
