A group of Gilbert Arizona Residents concerned about Chronic Venous Insufficiency gathered on Saturday July 16th for an interactive discussion on CVI symptoms, causes and treatments. Chronic Venous Insufficiency, Venous Reflux Disease and Varicose Veins affect over 30 million American men and women. Unfortunately, many do not get treated as they believe varicose veins are just a cosmetic problem or treatment would be cost prohibitive, or too painful. Those myths were exposed and dispelled during the informative morning session.
This health event was sponsored as a public service by Generations at Agritopia, an upscale Senior-Living Community in the heart of the Agritopia Community in Gilbert Arizona.
Amy Holt, Community Outreach Coordinator for Generations said, "Generations always welcomes educational speakers to be a reliable source for healthcare information. We have this beautiful facility in Gilbert for our residents, but we want it to benefit the entire community as well. There's no sense in having such a wonderful building and not be able to share it."
Generations invited Jilanne Rose, DNP, ANP-BC, of Advanced Vein Institute of Arizona to speak to the audience, which was made up of Generations residents as well as members of the surrounding community. Dr. Rose is the valleys' top vein specialist and is a board-certified adult nurse practitioner with over 10,000 vein care procedures to her credit.
"With modern vein treatment procedures that cause minimal pain and boast fast recovery times, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to live with the pain and discomfort of varicose veins," said Rose, "vein treatment has come a long way since the dark days of vein stripping!"
Following the event, interested attendees were given a free private vein screening and personal consultation where they could discuss their specific vascular concerns with Jilianne Rose.
