Dr. Powell Discusses P.A.D.

University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center’s Dr. Alexis Powell will present “Peripheral Artery Disease,” Tuesday, September 19 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. The program, which is free and open to the public, will be held at UH Samaritan on Main, 663 East Main Street.

Peripheral artery disease, or P.A.D. is a serious condition that occurs when blood flow through the legs and feet is restricted by the build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels of the legs. It leads to an increased risk of a serious vascular event, however, 50% of those with P.A.D. have no signs or symptoms. Join Dr. Powell to learn about symptoms, risk factors, and available screenings.  

This program is part of UH Samaritan’s popular Community Education series. Please register for this program by calling 419-207-2563.
