Life Line Screening will be at Arkansas State University - Newport July 24, performing a day of preventative health screenings. Most people can’t identify a single risk factor or a warning sign of stroke, yet over 750,000 Americans will be affected by a stroke this year alone.
Screenings are fast, painless and offered at low cost. They involve the use of ultrasound technology and scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which can lead to a stroke, aortic aneurysms which can lead to a rupture, and plaque buildup in the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease. Also offered for men and women is a bone density screening to assess their risk for osteoporosis. These non-invasive, inexpensive and painless ultrasound tests help people identify their risk for stroke, vascular diseases or osteoporosis early enough for their physician to begin preventive procedures. The screenings take 90 minutes or less to complete. The complete wellness package, which includes four vascular tests and the osteoporosis screening, is available for just $159, or $149 with member discount. Appointments are limited and pre-registration is required. Sign up now by calling toll free to 1-888-653-6441.
