CERRITOS – Dr. Randall Harada of Pioneer Medical Group will discuss peripheral arterial disease at a workshop Feb. 29 at the Cerritos Senior Center.
The workshop is free for adults ages 50 and older.
Peripheral arterial disease, also known as PAD, is a common yet serious disease that develops when arteries in the legs become clogged with plaque. People suffering from the disease are 4-5 times more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke than the average person.
Harada will discuss the signs, symptoms and current treatment options of PAD.
For more information, call the senior center at (562) 916-8550.
