My mother used to tell me that it was better to be safe than sorry, and that something in prevention was worth a pound of cure. That's what the Life Line Screenings and Our Savior Lutheran Church want to tell you, too!I read up a little bit about the Life Line Screenings and I found out that the company was founded in Florida in 1993 by Colin Scully and Timothy Phillips. The service has expanded across the USA and the United Kingdom. By 1998, the company had expanded across the United States, offering screenings to more than 500,000 people.  If you have worried about some conditions that don't have symptoms like these, maybe getting a screening would be good - after all, the relief is pretty important.  But, of course the LLS folks don't want you to feel pressured into getting one - they just want to offer them to those that really feel like they're necessary.  These screenings are easy, painless, affordable, and convenient. The highly trained technologists use state-of-the-art ultrasound screening equipment for lab-accurate results. In addition, the screenings require very little or no preparation. The screenings will test for Stroke/Cartotid Artery, Heart Rhythm, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, Peripheral Arterial Disease, and Osteoporosis. You can get all five screenings for $149, for a savings of $126. It’ll be held in the Our Savior Lutheran Church, 3700 West Broadway, Tuesday, March 11. Preregistration is required.

Preventatively yours,
