PAD screening event

Posted By J. B. Hunt, AAAneurysm Outreach, Friday, September 16, 2016

UMC New Orleans to Host Free Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Screening Event
PAD Awareness Month event will take place Saturday, September 24

 (NEW ORLEANS) – Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD), a condition that develops when arteries become clogged with plaque, affects one in every 20 Americans over the age of 50. Those with PAD are at greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke. This condition does not always come with symptoms, so many people who have PAD don’t know it.

In recognition of PAD Awareness Month, UMC New Orleans will host a free ultrasound screening & prevention event on Saturday, September 24 from 9 a.m. The screening will take place in UMC Conference Center, Room J. It is presented in partnership with AAAneurysm Outreach, New Cardiovascular Horizons and Amerigroup Real Solutions, will include a quick, painless, and non-invasive procedure to measure systolic blood pressure in the limbs.


Pre-registration is preferred for the September 24 event, but walk-ins are welcome. To schedule an appointment for screening, call (888) 871-3801.
