Stay in Circulation:  Take Steps to Learn About P.A.D. is the first national awareness campaign to increase public and health care provider awareness about peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.) and its association with other cardiovascular diseases.  Adults over age 50—the campaign's primary audience—are at risk for P.A.D.  Stepping up awareness of P.A.D. among the target audience and health care professionals will help keep Americans active and healthy so they can continue spending time with their families and friends and participating in the activities they enjoy.

Stay in Circulation was developed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in cooperation with the P.A.D. Coalition, a group of more than 40 national organizations and professional societies concerned with raising awareness about P.A.D.  The P.A.D. Coalition seeks to improve the prevention, early detection, treatment, and rehabilitation of people with, or at risk for, P.A.D.

The campaign is also working to secure partnerships with:

  • National nonprofit organizations that are active at the local level and can extend the campaign's reach and message
  • Corporate entities that can expand the available resources and enhance the visibility of Stay in Circulation
