September is Peripheral Artery Disease Awareness Month. To help SVS members educate patients and to spread awareness about vascular surgeons, we have prepared several things you can share.
1. An infographic for patients and their families. We urge you to print it and post around the office or your institution.
2. A quick resource web page for patients, offering patients a PAD video playlist and links to articles and information on PAD.
3. The latest PAD research information for physicians, along with clinical practice guideline links. If you have contacts among primary care physicians or other referrers, please feel free to send them this link.
4. Two press releases on PAD, to share with your communications people, public relations departments and/or patients
