Philadelphia, PA (PressExposure) May 09, 2012 -- A stroke, also known as a "brain attack," is ranked as the third leading killer in the world. To help seniors take a pro-active stand against conditions like stroke that are considered "silent killers", The Watermark at Logan Square is hosting an affordable, easy screening procedure to scan for potential health problems and address vague symptoms. Life Line Screening, the nation's largest provider of community-based preventive screenings, will conduct scans on Tuesday, July 10, 2012. The Watermark at Logan Square is located at 2 Franklin Town Blvd in Philadelphia, PA 19103. Appointments will begin at 9:00am.
The event is open to members of the community to help identify their risk of stroke, vascular disease, and heart rhythm abnormalities before the devastating effects of these conditions may occur. The complete screening package now includes a new Heart Rhythm screening, checking for irregular heartbeat, which is a major risk factor for stroke. These four screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete and 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. The Stroke, Vascular Disease and Heart Rhythm Package is $139.00. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-888-653-6441. Pre-registration is required.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nation's leading provider of community-based preventive screenings.
