Cullman Regional is hosting free PAD community screenings on Thursday, November 7 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Colonel Cullmann Room, located in Professional Office Building 2 on the Cullman Regional campus.
According to the American Heart Association, PAD affects about 8.5 million Americans, becoming more common as we age. PAD is a problem that causes poor blood flow to the arms, legs or feet. Cullman Regional’s screenings offer opportunities to check your risk for PAD and more.
Screenings include the following for all participants at no charge:
Body Mass Index
Bone Density Screening
PSA Screening (for qualifying participants)
“The goal of these screenings is to help community members identify any potential risk factors they may have in order to reduce their risk for peripheral artery disease,” said Lindsey Dossey, Vice President of Marketing. “We want to help our community catch potential risks and get them under control before it becomes an emergency.”
Do you suffer from leg pain that improves with rest? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you smoke? Do you have a family member with PAD? If so, call to schedule your appointment at 256-735-5600 or register online at cullmanregional.com. Walk-ins are also welcome.
