Men’s Health is a Family Matter.

This is why Saint Mary Magdalene Catholic Church is hosting Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings on Monday, June 30, 2014.  The screenings provided focus on vascular disease, a leading cause of illness, death and disability among men.

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.  Nearly 800,000 strokes will occur this year, taking a life approximately every four minutes.

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 $60.

By signing up for this health event, not only will you be able to receive $10 off any package of $149 or more, but Saint Mary Magdalene Catholic Church will also receive a $10 donation for every member who signs up and attends this Life Line Screening event.  To schedule your appointment and to receive this special offer, please sign up on the sheet provided by Saint Mary Magdalene Catholic Church.  Join in the fight against vascular disease!
