September is Peripheral Artery Disease Awareness Month- Learn Your Risk!
September is Peripheral Artery Disease Awareness Month
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) affects an estimated 8 million people in the U.S., and occurs when narrowed arteries reduce the blood flow to your limbs, especially your legs. However, many people mistake the symptoms of PAD for something else. Take our free PAD health risk assessment to learn if you are at risk for PAD.
What's new at UNC REX Healthcare:
New OB Hospitalists program at REX Women's Center
We are excited to announce that our new OB Emergency Department opened on September 1 inside the REX Women's Center. Expectant moms will now be able to be seen at the OB ED (instead of the main ED) by either their personal OB/GYN or one of our expert UNC REX OB Hospitalists.
Get the Flu Shot, Not the Flu
Even though it's only September, our Express Cares and Emergency Department have already seen some flu cases this year. All of our
UNC Physicians Network primary care, family medicine, and internal medicine offices have the flu shot available. Call to
schedule a nurse visit to get the flu vaccine today!
