MOORESVILLE, NC (February 19, 2014) – Lake Norman Regional Medical Center partners with Life Line Screening, and together they offer affordable, convenient medical screenings. Local stroke screenings will take place Monday, March 10th, at Mt. Zion Methodist Church in Cornelius, and Friday, March 28th, at the South Iredell Senior Center in downtown Mooresville. During these screenings, a painless ultrasound will check to see the plaque build-up in arteries, a leading cause of stroke.
At Life Line Screening, the mission is to make people aware of unrecognized health problems and encourage them to seek follow-up care with their personal physician. They are the leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings in the United States. They use advanced ultrasound equipment, the same as the equipment found in hospitals, and their screenings are performed by highly trained healthcare professionals. Results are reviewed by board-certified physicians to ensure the highest standards.
Since its inception in 1993, Life Line Screening has screened over seven million people, and currently screens over one million people each year at over 16,000 screening events nationwide. Through this experience, they often identify serious health issues and have helped save thousands of lives. They are dedicated to providing the highest quality preventive screenings at affordable rates.
The cost of a stroke/carotid artery screening is $60. To register, please call 1-877-237-1383. For more information about Life Line Screening, please visit www.LifeLineScreening.com/community-partners.
