Free health screenings to detect a deadly vascular condition called abdominal aortic aneurysm will be offered for Mesa area residents 60 and older 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 29.

AAA is a silent killer because it presents with no symptoms, but there are more than 1 million people living with an undiagnosed AAA. It’s the third leading cause of sudden death in men over 60 and it is three times more deadly in women. A simple ultrasound screening can detect it before it’s too late.

Screens will take place at Kmart Pharmacy, 2840 E. Main St., Mesa. Advance registration is required by calling (866) 371-3592. Space is limited. Screenings take 10 minutes.
