Free vein talk set at local senior centers
CENTREVILLE — A presenter from the Center for Vein Restoration will educate attendees on venous insufficiency and go over the signs, symptoms, risk factors and treatment options of leg vein disease at all three senior centers on Aug. 3.
The presentation will be offered at 9 a.m. at Kent Island Senior Center, 10:30 a.m. at Grasonville Senior Center and 12:30 p.m. at Sudlersville Senior Center.
The presentation may also include lower leg vein demonstration to display proper blood flow using a portable ultrasound machine. Participants may become aware of symptoms they might not have known to be correlated to leg vein disease.
For example, this condition can lead to tired, heavy, achy and painful legs. Some with this problem may have bulging leg veins, leg swelling by the end of the day and lower leg ulcers. Individuals may fall into high risk categories for venous disease due to family histor y, lifestyle choices and other factors. Join this free presentation to learn more and get answers to all your questions.
For questions or more information call the Queen Anne’s County Department of Aging at 410-758-0848, ext. 2715.
