Peripheral vascular disease is defined as any disease or disorder of the circulatory system outside of the brain and heart. It is a leading cause of disability in people over the age of 60, but there are effective ways to treat and manage the condition — especially if the diagnosis is made early. So 1889 Foundation is funding free screenings for people who are at risk of peripheral vascular disease.

  • Are you 50 years of age or older?
  • Are you a diabetic?
  • Do you have high blood pressure?
  • Do you smoke or use tobacco products?
  • Do you have thick toenails?
  • Have you lost hair on your legs?
  • Do you have wounds on your feet that last more than three weeks?
  • Do you have leg pain while walking that subsides when at rest?

If you answered yes to two or more of the above questions, you may be eligible for a free screening. Call 814.534.9271 for screening dates and locations.
