Wellness profile testing will take place March 25

Stroke Detection Plus to do screenings

PRINCETON — Stroke Detection Plus will be screening at the Prouty Building, 435 S. Main St. in Princeton, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 25.

A complete wellness profile (ultrasound screening for stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease and osteoporosis) is only $100 for Farm Bureau members. That is a $35 savings over the $135 the general public will pay. People may add an EKG to detect atrial fibrillation for an additional $35.

Appointments are necessary. To set up an appointment, call toll-free 877-732-8258. A two-minute virtual tour of the screenings can be found at www.strokedetectionplus.com.

People over the age of 40 are encouraged to get tested especially with one or more of the following risk factors: high blood pressure, diabetes, more than 20 pounds overweight, smoke, have high cholesterol, inactive lifestyle, or have a family medical history of heart disease or stroke.

A stroke screening will help to identify these blood flow blockages. Stroke Detection Plus, a mobile vascular screening company, uses ultrasound technology to find blockages in the body’s blood vessels that could lead to a stroke.
