This new mural in historic Northeast Kansas City is dedicated to educating the community about peripheral artery disease (PAD) and how to recognize and address it. The mural unveiling event will feature food trucks, music, art making for all ages, PAD information fair, and speakers. {Event rain out date: April 17}  |  Four Kansas City artists have collaborated with medical researchers and the Mattie Rhodes Art Center over the last 12 months to create this community mural: Artists: Carmen Moreno, Jason Wilcox, Isaac Tapia, and Rodrigo Alvarez Researchers: Kim Smolderen – Yale University; Christina Pacheco – Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute; Dr. Janette Berkley-Patton – University of Missouri Kansas City |  More than 8.5 million Americans over the age of 40 live with peripheral artery disease (commonly known as PAD) that causes pain while walking. Awareness of PAD in the general population is low (about 25%), and research from the American Heart Association shows that people living in center city neighborhoods are especially at risk of a late diagnosis, so the intent is to raise awareness of PAD in an area where people are most at risk.
