Hear from the experts from the University of MN School of Nursing on Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.) during a presentation at the Expo. The Pope County Community Expo is on Saturday, April 8, at Minnewaska Area High School. Learn how to manage risk factors and what you can do to improve symptoms and decrease your risk of heart attack and stroke.
P.A.D. is a common disease caused by a buildup of fatty deposits in the blood vessels of the legs. It often results in pain or discomfort caused by decreased blood supply to the leg muscles during physical activity. The pain is often described as cramping or aching in the calf, thigh or buttock that comes on with walking and is relieved by rest. Attend the seminar to learn more.
Non-invasive, FREE P.A.D. testing is being scheduled at Glacial Ridge Hospital. Visit the University of MN School of Nursing booth at the Expo – right next to Glacial Ridge Health System – to sign up for the testing to see if you are at risk.
