UPDATE: This study has been completed. Thank you for your interest.

The Department of Preventive Medicine & Public Health at KU School of Medicine-Wichita is seeking adults age 50 and older for a study on Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). Those who participate will be compensated for their time and effort.

Do the following describe you?

  • Overweight or obese
  • Age 50 or older and English-speaking
  • Buttock, thigh or calf muscle cramping while walking
  • Difficulty walking without frequently stopping
  • Have 24-hour access to a cellphone

If so, you may have poor leg circulation and may be eligible to participate in this study, which focuses on overweight/obese adults with Peripheral Artery Disease.

The study will include a phone screening, an in-person screening that includes a short walking test, and a random placement into one of two groups. One group will meet in person to discuss exercise and nutrition, while the other group will receive the same exercise and nutrition information via an app.
