Healthy Legs, Healthy Life lecture at Healthy Living Connections is another success

This morning, Healthy Living Connections packed the house once again during their Healthy Legs, Healthy Life lecture at TMC’s El Dorado Health Campus.

During the lecture, Dr. Luis Leon discussed risk factors related to venous disease, signs and symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Superficial Phlebitis, Varicose Veins, and Post Phlebitis Syndrome to nearly 60 attendees.

Dr. Matthew Namanny followed with a discussion of  signs and symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis and treatment of Arterial Vascular Disease.

One attendee that comes to many of the lectures held at the campus says that she comes for the general learning. “These lectures are always fabulous and the fact that they are offered at no cost is a phenomenal community service,” she says. “My husband and I have been coming for years.”

During the talk, nursing staff from TMC Vascular services offered attendees free blood pressure screenings, as well as passing out coupons for future PAD screenings.

The lecture, one of many that occur at the campus on a regular basis, is a part of the  Healthy Living Connections  program– a place for older adults to access community resources for key health and wellness issues.

In addition to the lectures by physicians that cover a wide range of health topics, programming includes a health information center, health screenings, consultations by trained volunteer health coaches, community agency satellite offices such as the American Parkinson’s Disease Association.
