In a May 4, 2011 press release, the Vascular Disease Foundation (VDF) announced that U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Peggy Fleming will be featured in a DVD teaching tool promotion from the Vascular Disease Foundation’s PAD Coalition and their partners, the American College of Physicians. This educational tool kit will be made available after a $5 donation. This promotion highlights May Stroke Awareness Month.
In the DVD, “A Guide to PAD,” Peggy will share her own experiences with heart disease, having lost both her father and her sister to the illness. The DVD, with accompanying booklet, is aimed to educate patients on peripheral arterial disease (PAD), its risk factors, symptoms and treatments. It will also include beneficial lifestyle changes.
