Stroke, osteoporosis screenings return to Shelburne

Shelburne residents and nearby community members can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture by Life Line Screening on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Shelburne.

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.

Screening packages begin at $159. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Trinity Episcopal Church is located at 5171 Shelburne Road in Shelburne. Pre-registration is required.
