NEWTON, NC (Jan. 8, 2019)—Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, is pleased to offer a preventive health event at the Newton Recreation Center on Thursday, Jan. 17.

Five screenings will be offered that scan for the following potential health problems:

» 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 is a strong predictor of heart disease
» Atrial fibrillation or irregular heartbeat, which are closely tied to stroke risk
» Bone density screening, which is used to assess the risk of osteoporosis in men and women

Register for a wellness package which includes four vascular tests and an osteoporosis screening for $149 ($139 with a member discount). All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Screenings will be at the Newton Recreation Center, 23 South Brady Ave.
