Low-cost preventive health screenings set for Berlin Community Center

Registration is underway for the affordable Life Line Screening event on Aug. 14

Berlin Community Center will host a preventive health event with Life Line Screening – a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings – on Wednesday, Aug. 14.

The event is designed to offer five affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries, which is 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 is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis.

Register for a wellness package, which includes four vascular tests and the osteoporosis screenings, from $149 ($139 with member discount). All five screenings take 60 to 90 minutes to complete.

There are three ways to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount of any package priced above $129. Call (888) 653-6441, visit www.lifelinescreening.com/communitycircle or text the word “circle” to 797979.
