dare to C.A.R.E.
UT Physicians offers free vascular screenings
UT Physicians, a part of UTHealth, is offering the dare to C.A.R.E. program in several UT Physician community-based clinics throughout Houston.
The dare to C.A.R.E. program is a free, 15-minute screening designed to educate and prevent vascular disease. The free community outreach program screens patients at risk for developing vascular diseases such as: carotid artery disease which can lead to stroke, aortic aneurysm, and peripheral arterial disease.
To qualify for the free screening, the individual must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Over 40 with diabetes
- Over 50 with certain health risk factors such as family history of stroke, aortic aneurysm, or heart attack, a past or current smoker, high blood pressure or high cholesterol
- Over 60
The Dare to CARE program is open to anyone that fits the above risk factors, even if they are currently not a patient of UT Physicians. A referral is not needed, and all screening results are mailed to the participant and the participant’s primary care provider.
The program is designed to improve the health of the Houston community. If you or someone you know fits the above criteria, encourage them to call 713-486-DARE (3273) to schedule an appointment.
