Stroke and osteoporosis screenings coming to NL community center June 26
NORTH LIBERTY– Residents living in the North Liberty area can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. North Liberty Community Center will host Life Line Screening on June 26.
Four key points every person needs to know: Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. Eighty 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.
Pre-registration is required. 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 877-237-1287 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com.
