1. April is Limb Loss Awareness Month
Approximately 2.1 million people in the U.S. are amputees and, of them, more than half have lost a limb to vascular disease. To raise awareness of these patients, the nonprofit Amputee Coalition is working to educate the public on limb loss, its prevention and treatment.
In conjunction with the coalition's Limb Loss Awareness Month, the organization has shared an informative infographic that we encourage you to print for your office or share with colleagues.
Please also share with patients the link below, to the SVS patient information page on amputations.
