AAAneurysm Outreach


Founded in Louisiana in 1999, AAAneurysm Outreach is committed to eliminating the silent killer of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) through screening, outreach and education. An estimated 1.2 million people in the United States have an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which is the third leading cause of sudden death in men over the age of 60.

We save lives by providing free ultrasound screenings that discover the silent killer: abdominal aortic aneurysms. Once discovered, AAAs can be treated, before they rupture. Working throughout the state and across the country with volunteer AAAmbassadors, we encourage everyone to talk to their physicians about their risks-and to get this simple, painless screening.
