Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, is pleased to offer a preventive health event at the Newton Recreation Center on Monday, April 30.
Five screenings will be offered that scan for the following potential health problems:
» Blocked arteries, which are a leading cause of stroke
» Abdominal aortic aneurysms, which can lead to a ruptured aorta
» Hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease
» Atrial fibrillation or irregular heartbeat, which are closely tied to stroke risk
» Bone density screening, which is used to assess the risk of osteoporosis in men and women
Two screening packages are available. Package 1 includes plaque, vascular disease, and heart rhythm screenings (four tests) for $139. Package 2 includes plaque, vascular disease, heart rhythm, and osteoporosis screenings (five tests) for $149.
All screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Screenings will be at the Newton Recreation Center, 23 South Brady Ave.
