Legs for Life: Screening for P.A.D.
November 7, 2006, Volume 53, No. 11

UPHS is hosting a free screening event for the public, Tuesday, November 14, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., in Houston Hall, to look for peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.), as well as Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, Carotid Disease and Venous Disease. You must reserve a screening time in advance; call (215) 615-4135.

“Many people with P.A.D. won’t experience obvious symptoms,” explains interventional radiologist Dr. Jeffrey Solomon, director of Penn’s Legs for Life program. “Many patients suffering from P.A.D. ignore or cannot feel the classic warning signs of it—leg pain.”
