Town Hall for Cardiovascular Health
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) affects 8.5 million Americans. PAD causes pain in the legs while walking and can lead to heart attack, stroke or amputation. Local PAD researchers invite the Kansas City community to provide input on how we can best raise awareness about PAD and educate the community about cardiovascular health. We will discuss a community art project that will serve as a visual expression of the importance of vascular health, and we’ll share information about PAD symptoms, how to get tested, and the different ways of managing this condition.
