2015 NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo in Washington, D.C.
Center for Vein Restoration was proud to take part in the 22nd Annual 2015 NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo in Washington, D.C. Billed as the largest, free two-day public health event in the area, tens of thousands of local residents turned out to the Washington Convention Center to get important, even life-saving health information and screenings including kidney screenings, vision exams, cholesterol screenings and more.
As part of our ongoing effort to educate consumers in all the local communities we serve, our community outreach staff was out in force to provide free screenings and to provide information on venous insufficiency.
The event had a genuine festival atmosphere with several stages packed with information, fun and discussions, from zumba and dance to cooking, workouts, kids’ health and more. Even TV celebrities took part, including NBC journalist Meredith Vieira and one of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Thanks go out to our intrepid team of community outreach coordinators, vascular technicians, regional operations directors, practice administrators and center coordinators who gave their all to spread the word about vein health. The health education team performed more than 160 lower leg ultrasound demonstrations over the two day event, while Drs. Michelle Nguyen, Arun Chowla and Khan Nguyen were on hand to answer questions from community members as well.
If you’d like Center for Vein Restoration to provide demonstrations or free limited lower-leg ultrasound checks at your community event, contact Robert Howell at (240) 965-3878 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
