Saint Luke’s Health System is committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. Effective Nov. 1, 2021, full COVID-19 vaccination is a condition of employment for all SLHS employees.

A new mural will be unveiled in the Northeast area of Kansas City, Missouri, to help educate and raise awareness about peripheral artery disease.

Commonly known as PAD, peripheral artery disease is a vascular disease that causes pain in the legs while walking. It affects 8.5 million Americans over age 40, but only 25% are aware of the disease.

In 2018, a team of researchers at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) started a project to raise awareness about PAD. The team resulted in the creation of an online platform to share their findings with newly diagnosed people. Funded through the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, this project will include the mural as another way to share the researchers’ findings with the community.
