Menarche to Menopause - Controlling Your Periods
Presented by Anthony Tizzano, M.D.
Monday, August 21, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
UH Samaritan on Main, 663 East Main Street, Ashland, Ohio 44805

From your first period to your last period. The menstrual cycle is a natural part of a woman’s life, but it is not always freely discussed. That means you may be left with many unanswered questions. At what age does the menstrual cycle start? When does it end? What problems are associated with periods? What is normal? Are there treatment options? Join Dr. Tizzano for a greater understanding of what to expect during the menstruating years.

Peripheral Artery Disease
Presented by Alexis Powell, M.D.
Tuesday, September 19, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
UH Samaritan on Main, 663 East Main Street, Ashland, Ohio 44805

Peripheral artery disease, or P.A.D. is a serious condition caused by a build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels of the legs. It’s estimated 8 to 12 million Americans are currently living with P.A.D., but only 2 million have been diagnosed. That’s because 50% of those with P.A.D. have no signs or symptoms. Since patients with P.A.D. have a 40% risk of a serious vascular event (heart attack, stroke, death) within three years, it’s important to accurately diagnosis P.A.D. Join Dr. Powell to learn about symptoms, risk factors and available screenings.
