Life Line Screening Coming to Aberdeen This March
Residents living in and around the Aberdeen community 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 which is a major risk factor for stroke.
Life Line Screening will be at the Aberdeen First Baptist Church Friday, March 14. The site is located at 700 N. Sandhills Blvd., Aberdeen. Appointments will begin at 9 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," says a spokesman. "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, 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."
Register for a Wellness Package with Heart Rhythm for $149. All five screenings take 60 to 90 minutes to complete.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nation's leading provider of preventive screenings.
