Stroke, bone density screenings offered in Conyers

DeKalb Medical and DeKalb Medical at Hillandale will sponsor Life Line Screenings in two Conyers locations. The screenings are designed to reduce the risk of stroke and bone fractures.

Rockdale Baptist Church, 1295 Smyrna Road, will host a screening on March 17 and Voice of Faith Ministries, 1290 Sigman Road, will host one on March 25.

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 to 90 minutes to complete.

For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Registration is required.
