Do you experience leg cramps while walking? Do your legs sometimes feel numb or weak? These are symptoms of a circulatory disorder called peripheral artery disease (PAD). To learn more about PAD, join Paramjit “Romi” Chopra, MD, an endovascular and interventional radiologist, for a lecture at Rush Oak Park Hospital. He will discuss symptoms and the latest treatment options, including a new minimally invasive approach now available at Rush Oak Park Hospital.

Brief screenings for PAD will immediately follow the lecture for those who are interested.

Tired, Hot, Moody: Could It Be Your Thyroid?

Wed, Jan 28, 2015
6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Rush Medical Office Building
610 S. Maple Ave., Room 2000
Tired all the time or feeling wired for no apparent reason? Gaining or losing weight without trying? Feeling hot when it’s incredibly cold? One possible explanation: it’s your thyroid — the gland that controls heartbeat, calorie burning, body temperature and more. Your thyroid can be problematic when it becomes overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism), or develops abnormal growths such as cancer. Learn more about these conditions and how to get help diagnosing and treating them from Jennifer Cunningham, MD, an endocrinologist at Rush Oak Park Hospital.
