Residents living in and around the Victoria community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture.
Victoria Country Club, 14 Spring Creek Road, will host Life Line Screening on April 30, according to a news release from the company.
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 1-877-237-1287 or visit the company's website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
Screenings in Texas require physician authorization. A Life Line Screening-affiliated physician will provide authorization for anyone who qualifies.
