Church offering Life Line Screening

Monday, September 3, 2012

First Christian Church, 1875 West United States 40, Brazil, will host a Life Line Screening on Oct. 29. Life Line Screening can help identify a person's risk for stroke or bone fracture.

Life Line Screening identifies potential cardiovascular conditions like blocked arteries, irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of arteries in the legs--all strong predictors of heart disease. Life Line Screening will also offer a bone density screening to assess possible osteoporosis risk.

Stroke is currently the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability.

Stroke victims often have no warning signs prior to their stroke. Screenings can help avoid a stroke.

The screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient.

Screening packages start at $149, and are available to both men and women. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete and pre-registration is required.

For more information about the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com.
