Stroke screening scheduled for tomorrow

Residents living in and around the Tyrone community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke.
The complete screening package now includes a new Heart Rhythm screening which checks for irregular heartbeat, a major risk factor for stroke.
Life Line Screening will be at the St. Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church on August 6.
The site is located at 1105 Cameron Ave. in Tyrone. Appointments will begin at 10 a.m.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit the website at
Pre-registration is required.
A stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is ranked as the third leading killer in the world.
Screenings are fast, painless and affordable.
They help identify potential health problems 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.
Register for a Wellness Package with Heart Rhythm for $149.
All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nation’s leading provider of preventive screenings.
