Health screenings coming to Lander

May 7, 2013 - From staff reports

Residents living in and around Lander can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture.

The Inn at Lander-Best Western, 260 Grandview Drive, will host Life Line Screening on May 17.

Four key points every person needs to know:

- Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability

- 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs before their stroke

- Preventive ultrasound screenings can help people avoid a stroke

- Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient

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.
