 April Designated to Raise Awareness of the Importance of Public Health

 According to the American Public Health Association’s website, “… every year chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes are responsible for millions of premature deaths…Catching and preventing these illnesses and incidents before they develop is the key to improving our nation’s health.

At Faith Lutheran Church, we agree. This is why we are hosting Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings on Saturday, April 7, 2018.   

 Screenings are fast, painless and affordable.  Three key tests check for blocked carotid arteries, an irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation, and high blood pressure, which are the three leading risk factors for stroke.  Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., yet, with preventive strategies, 80% of strokes can be prevented.

 Other tests check for abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many events also offer blood tests, including cholesterol, glucose and c-reactive protein screenings, as well as take-home colon cancer early detection tests.

 Screening packages start at $139. Single tests cost around $70. 

 For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment,
