Residents living in the Hinesville area can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke.
The complete screening package now includes a new heart-rhythm screening, checking for irregular heartbeat that is a major risk factor for stroke.
Life Line Screening will be at the Church of Christ on Oct. 16 at 317 West Court St. in Hinesville. Appointments will begin at 10 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is ranked as the third leading killer in the world.
Screenings are fast, painless and affordable. They help identify potential health problems such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs that 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.
Register for a complete wellness package with Heart Rhythm at $129. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nation’s leading provider of preventive screenings.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721. Pre-registration is required.
