WVU Heart and Vascular Institute partners with group for free exams

The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute’s CHOICE program, in partnership with the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) Education and Research Foundation and more than 20 medical organizations from across the United States, will host a first-of-its-kind, one-day free cardiovascular screening and diagnostic examination event at four WVU Medicine locations in North Central West Virginia on Oct. 20.
“This screening is an opportunity for people to receive the most advanced cardiac examinations using state-of-the-art technology without worrying about financial constraints,” Dr. Partho Sengupta, chief of Cardiology at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute, said. “This is the first time a screening with this level of technology and number of professionals from across the country has been done in the United States.

Screenings will be available at these WVU Heart and Vascular Institute locations:
