Residents living in and around the Logan, community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Nighbert Memorial United Methodist Church, 13 White Street, Logan, will host Life Line Screening on January 11, 2013.
William Rexrode of Durbin attended a Life Line Screening.
“I would not be here today if it wasn’t for your company,” said Durbin. “Thanks for the second chance”.
Four key points every person needs to know:
• Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability
• 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke
• Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke
• Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient
• Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.
Packages start at $149. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit their website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
