Reppell Diabetes Learning Center to host ‘Love Your Limbs’

The Reppell Diabetes Learning Center is raising awareness of the dangers of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). A "Love Your Limbs" event is scheduled for Monday at noon at the center.

The American Heart Association reports PAD is a life-threatening condition affecting millions of Americans by narrowing artieres and reducing blood flow to the limbs. The American Diabetes Association estimates one out of every three diabetes patients over the age of 50 have this condition. PAD can go undiagnosed because symptoms don't always show.

Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Patrick Tobbia will be featured during the Love Your Limbs event. There is no cost to attend, and lunch will be served. To register, enroll online or contact Reppell Diabetes Learning Center Jodi Bodenhamer at 870-508-1765 or jbodenhamer@baxterregional.org
