Residents living in and around the Oakdale area can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other chronic, serious conditions with affordable screenings by Life Line Screening. Community United Methodist Church will host this community event on Thursday, March 14. The church is at 1480 Poplar, Oakdale.
Screenings can check for: the level of plaque buildup in your arteries, related to risk for heart disease, stroke and overall vascular health; HDL and LDL cholesterol levels; diabetes risk; bone density as a risk for possible osteoporosis; kidney and thyroid function, and more.
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 you to create a package that is right for you based on your age and risk factors. Also ask about their Wellness Gold Membership Program which allows customers to get all the screenings they need now, but pay $19.95 a month. Call 1-877-237-1287 or visit their website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
