Pine Belt residents have an opportunity to receive a free screening for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) on October 21 and 22 at Forrest General Hospital.
Early detection is the key! If you are over age 60, or over age 50 with risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, you can qualify for this screening. Dare to C.A.R.E. is a comprehensive cardiovascular disease early detection and education program that is now being offered to qualifying men and women in the Pine Belt.
