Residents living in and around the Blaine community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke. Life Line Screening will be at the Blaine senior center on September 24. Appointments will begin at 9 a.m.
Screenings use ultrasound to scan for blocked arteries, aortic aneurysms (which can lead to a ruptured aorta), and hardening of the arteries in the legs. Also offered is a bone density screening to assess the risk for osteoporosis.

Each screening requires ten minutes or less. A complete vascular screening package, including the stroke/carotid artery, abdominal aortic aneurysm and ankle brachial index (hardening of the arteries) screenings is $99. Sign-up for a complete vascular package; include the osteoporosis screening and pay only $125.

For more info or to schedule an appointment, call 800/643-6188. Preregistration is required.
