PVD Condition Center Now Live on CardioSmart.org
ACC’s patient resource website, CardioSmart.org, has launched a new condition center on peripheral vascular disease (PVD), aimed at helping patients understand their condition and providing them with the resources they need to maintain their heart health. Clinicians are encouraged to direct their patients to the condition center for information such as a patient-focused overview of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), questions to ask physicians, and related fact sheets on PAD and walking for exercise. This condition center was made possible with the help of: Herbert Aronow, MD, MPH, FACC, chair of the PVD Council and Section; Khusrow A. K. Niazi, MBBS, FACC, PVD council member and PVD CardioSmart condition center lead; Michelle Sloan, NP, PVD council member and PVD CardioSmart condition center lead; Mirvat Alasnag, MD, BCh, from the King Fahd Armed Forces Hospital in Saudi Arabia; Wobo Bekwelem, MD, a fellow in training at the University of Minnesota Hospital & Clinics; Neal K. Bhatia, MD, a fellow in training at the Emory University School of Medicine; Jaafer A. Golzar, MD, FACC, from the Advocate Christ Medical Center; Keyur Mavani, MD, from the Community Medical Center and Moses Taylor Hospital; Andrew Roy, MD, from the Institut Cardiovasculaire Paris Sud in Paris, France; and Suthipong Soontrapa, MD, a fellow in training.
