Welcome to Check Up 13, in partnering with St. Vincent Health

WTHR, Channel 13, and Anne Marie Tiernon, co-anchor and health reporter, have partnered with St. Vincent Health on an initiative called Check Up 13. The goal of the program is to educate and encourage Indiana residents to take a proactive role in their own health. Check Up 13 includes news stories that will air on the 13th of every month during the Health Beat segment. The program will highlight St. Vincent Health medical staff and focus on the health topic screening, event or promotion for that month.
 
Vascular Disease

Vascular Disease includes any condition that affects the circulatory system.  This ranges from diseases of the arteries, veins and lymph vessels to blood disorders that affect circulation.

  • Vascular disease may be undiagnosed and untreated, despite the risks of serious complications like stroke, death or the loss of limbs.
  • Our population is aging and the rate of vascular disease has risen significantly, but diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease have not kept pace with heart disease.

Vascular disease, like heart disease, MUST become a national health care priority to reduce death and disability due to vascular disease.  More>>
