Residents living in and around the Fort Dodge community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Iowa Central Community College will host Life Line screening on Aug. 23 at 1 Triton Circle.
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 $149. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call (877) 237-1287 or visit the website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Preregistration is required.
