THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Life Line Screening at Crivitz on Oct. 22
Issue Date: October 16, 2013
Residents of the Crivitz area can be screened to reduce risk of having a stroke or bone fracture when St. Marys Church will host Life Line Screen on Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Four key points every person should know is that a stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability, 80% of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke, preventive ultrasound screenings can help avoid a stroke, and 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 $159. 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. Pre-registration is required.
