Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Residents living in and around the Toledo community can be screened to reduce their risk of having stroke or bone fracture- Reinig Community Center will host Life Line Screening on June 13. The site is located at 1007 Prospect Drive in Toledo.

Four key points every person needs to know:

1. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability

2. 80% of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke

3. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke

4. Screenings are fast, non-invasive, 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.

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 our website at Pre -registration is required.
