Health screenings slated for Friday

Residents living in and around Marion can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and other chronic, serious conditions with affordable screenings by Life Line Screening.  Marion United Methodist Church will host this community event on Friday.

Screenings can check for:
  • The level of plaque buildup in arteries, related to risk for heart disease, stroke and overall vascular health.
  • HDL and LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Diabetes risk.
  • Bone density as a risk for osteoporosis.
  • Kidney and thyroid function, and more.
Screenings are convenient and accessible for wheelchairs and those with trouble walking. Packages start at $149, but consultants will work with participants to create a package based on age and risk factors.

The church where the screenings will take place is located at 112 S. College St. in Marion.
