Awareness Month to Urge Diagnosed Residents to Seek Treatment -

NEW YORK, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- According to research conducted by the National Minority Quality Forum (NMQF), Detroit tops the list of P.A.D. "Hot Spots" as the city with the highest rate of Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.), a condition that more than doubles the risk of having a heart attack or stroke and more than quadruples the risk of dying from heart disease. P.A.D. "Hot Spots" is the first geographic ranking of P.A.D. prevalence across the United States.

"P.A.D: Make the Connection" is an educational initiative supported by the sanofi-aventis/Bristol-Myers Squibb partnership in collaboration with The P.A.D. Coalition. Following Detroit, the top P.A.D. "Hot Spots" in order of ranking, include Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, Cleveland, St. Louis, Memphis, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Miami. A complete ranking can be found at http://www.PADfacts.org.

"Last year I helped launch 'P.A.D: Make the Connection' to raise awareness of the condition," said award-winning actress, Phylicia Rashad. "This new research pinpoints where P.A.D. is most prevalent, so my next step is to urge people, especially those living in the 'Hot Spots,' to take the necessary steps to be examined and, if diagnosed with P.A.D., get treated to reduce the risk for heart attack and stroke."
