Non-profit tenant organization AAAneurysm Outreach continues to expand its reach across the U.S., with two free screenings set in October in Connecticut and Chicago. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the 13th leading cause of death in the country. Early detection is critical because there are typically no symptoms until rupture occurs, and up to 90% of patients who experience a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm will not survive. AAAneurysm Outreach has provided noninvasive screenings to men and women from all 50 states this year, including more than 1,000 veterans screened during the national convention of Veterans of Foreign Wars.
