CLEARLAKE, Calif. – February is Heart Month, and as part of its celebrations Adventist Heart & Vascular Institute is pleased to offer a free patient education seminar in Clearlake on Thursday, Feb. 21, on the topic of peripheral vascular disease.

The seminar will take place at the Clearlake Senior Community Center, 3245 Bowers Ave. in Clearlake.

It begins with refreshments and small bites at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation at 6 p.m.

Peripheral vascular disease, or PVD, occurs when you do not get enough blood from your heart due to blocked arteries.

Symptoms may include pain and cramping in your legs when you walk, leg ulcers that take a long time to heal and varicose veins.

PVD can be a precursor to serious heart complications or stroke.

At the seminar, attendees will learn about new advances in treatment options, from lifestyle changes to medications and minimally invasive interventions, and a free screening offered in Clearlake called Dare to C.A.R.E. that can help you understand your risk and if treatment is right for you.

The seminar will be presented by internationally renowned physician Dr. John Laird, an interventional cardiologist and vascular medicine specialist.

Dr. Laird earned his medical degree from Albany Medical College. He completed a residency at Madigan Army Medical Center followed by a fellowship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dr. Laird is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology.

“As we are all too aware, cardiovascular disease is one of the most pervasive problems facing our patients today,” says Dr. Laird, who is also medical director for the Adventist Heart & Vascular Institute. “Early intervention, prevention and education are key to improving the heart and vascular health of our local community.”

The Adventist Heart & Vascular Institute spans six counties, four hospitals and multiple clinic locations, including five clinics right here in Lake County.

The multispecialty team provides comprehensive cardiac care, bringing together some of the most talented cardiac health professionals and cutting-edge technology on the West Coast.

The free seminar is open to all. Register by calling 877-596-0644.
