White County Farm Bureau offering stroke screening June 16th

Life Line Screening will offer five health screenings using non-invasive ultrasound to assess your risk for stroke and vascular disease from on Friday, June 16, 2017 at the White County Farm Bureau.

Five screenings will be offered which scan for potential health problems related to blocked arteries which are a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which are a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening used to assess the risk of osteoporosis.

Life Line Screening uses painless ultrasound to see the plaque build-up in your arteries, which is a leading cause of stroke. According to the National Stroke Association, 80% of strokes can be prevented. Each test takes approximately 10 minutes.

Anyone interested in the screenings must register at least 24 hours in advance, although early registration is suggested. Call 1-888-653-6450 to schedule an appointment.

Members of the Farm Bureau can receive all 5 screenings for $139, a savings of $10 off the regular price.
