FOR THE first time, the UST Health Service conducted a vein wellness screening last March 26.

Health Service Director Ma. Salve Olalia said the wellness program sought to prevent more threatening leg vein conditions.

“We are aware that many of the Thomasian community members suffer from leg pains and swelling. Many have varicose and spider veins,” said Olalia. “We want to help in the early diagnosis of these conditions.”

A Doppler machine, a tool used to measure blood flow velocities, was used to check leg veins.

Olalia said screening services are available upon request by students, faculty and support staff. The vein wellness screening was part of the “USTeps to Wellness: Fit and Well @ 400” project. B.D. Nicolas
