Stroke, osteoporosis screenings offered

May 13 in Pine River

Pine River American Legion Post #613 will host a Life Line Screening on Monday, May 13, to reduce people’s risk of having a stroke or bone fracture.

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 or to schedule an appointment, call 877-237-1287 or visit Pre-registration is required.
