Residents living in and around the Memphis area can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other chronic, serious conditions with affordable screenings by Life Line Screening.  Scotland County Fitness Center will host this community event on September 20th.

Screenings can check for the level of plaque buildup in arteries, related to risk for heart disease, stroke and overall vascular health. HDL and LDL Cholesterol levels are also checked along with diabetes risk, bone density as a risk for possible osteoporosis and kidney and thyroid function.

Screenings are affordable, convenient and accessible for wheelchairs and those with trouble walking.  Free parking is also available.

Packages start at $149, but consultants will work with customers to create a package that meets their needs based on age and risk factors.

Call 1-877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
