Health screenings offered at Huntley event

HUNTLEY – Residents living in and around Huntley can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture.

St. Mary Catholic Church, 10307 Dundee Road, will host Life Line Screening on April 17.

Stroke is the third-leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. Eighty percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs before their stroke.

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. Many sites offer finger-stick blood tests to check for cholesterol and glucose. 

Packages start at $159. All five screenings take 60 to 90 minutes to complete. 

Advance registration is required. 

For information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com.
