NEWTON, NC (Jan. 26, 2017) – Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, is pleased to offer a preventive health event at Newton Recreation Center on Wednesday, March 1.

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

» 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

Registration for the Wellness Package, which includes the four vascular tests and an osteoporosis screening, is $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.
