St John Neumann Parish will host Life Line Screening on Dec. 3. The site is located at 705 Route 739 in Hawley. Joanne Higgins of Hanover, PA attended a Life Line Screening and said, "I probably wouldn't be here if not for Life Line Screening." Four key points every person needs to know: • Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability • 80% of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke • Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke • Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient 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. Packages start at $159. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
