Legs for Life: Free Screenings on November 16

The Division of Interventional Radiology at HUP, in conjunction with the national Society of Interventional Radiology, is sponsoring "Legs for Life," a public education and community wellness program to help identify people who may be at risk for PVD. PVD is caused by blocked blood flow in the arteries of the legs and often causes pain or swelling, difficulty walking, numbness and skin discoloration. It affects 10 million Americans, typically over age 50. People suffering from diabetes, smokers, and those with high blood pressure or high cholesterol are at increased risk of PVD.

Free Screenings will be given on Tuesday, November 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bodek Lounge, Houston Hall. Appointments are necessary, please call (215) 615-4135, or for Spanish-language service, please call (215) 615-4399. Penn interventional radiologists and other specialists will be available to explain PVD & AAA, in both English and Spanish.
