Yesterday, our own Nikki Loerzel, RVT and Kristi Manion, CMA were guest speakers at Campas De Las Campanas in Rancho Bernardo. The event was to increase public awareness about venous disease and to promote recognition of signs and symptoms. Nikki spoke for about an hour and answered questions regarding venous disease, vein conditions, treatments, diagnosis and compression stockings.
La Jolla Vein Care’s ‘Healthy Legs’ educational series teamed up with Covidien’s ‘Rethink Varicose Veins’ campaign to increase community education. Last month, Covidien hosted a dinner presentation to increase awareness about venous disease in the medical profession. Dr’s Bunke-Paquette and Fronek spoke to other physicians about diagnosing venous disease such as chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins, as well and new endovenous treatments. There were about 30 physicians from various disciplines including dermatologists, internists, surgeons, podiatrists, etc.
La Jolla Vein Care will return to Campas De Las Campanas on Monday for a free community vein screening.
