PRINCETON — Residents living in and around the Princeton community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture on March 28.

The Princeton Elks Lodge will host a Life Line Screening at the Lodge, 1105 E. Peru St. in Princeton. 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 877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
