Football legend raising awareness for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
On Thursday, April 25, 2013, more than 225 people came out to meet professional football legend Joe Theismann. Joe promoted abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) awareness, entertained the crowd with football stories, answered questions from the audience and signed fan memorabilia. The event took place in Virginia Beach, Virginia and was sponsored by Sentara Healthcare and Sentara Vascular Specialists.
More than a million people are living with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) – a potentially life-threatening vascular condition – and don’t know it. The risk rises if you’re over 60, have a history of smoking, have high blood pressure and have high cholesterol or a family history of the disease. The good news is that Sentara Vascular Specialists provides a simple ultrasound screening that can help save lives!
