Stroke And Osteoporosis Screenings Coming To Spencer On September 27

Residents living in and around the Spencer can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Spencer Presbyterian Church-Cornerstone Hall, located at 154 North Main Street, will host Life Line Screening on Friday, September 27.

Clark Reiter of Plymouth, Indiana attended a Life Line Screening and said, “I’d like to say thanks to the technologist for telling me to get to the doctor. It saved my life”.

This event is being Sponsored By: St. Vincent Health.

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.

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, or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
