People living in and around the Seymour community will have the chance to reduce their risk of having cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and other chronic serious conditions with screenings May 4 at The Point, 311 Myers St., Seymour.
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 possible osteoporosis; kidney and thyroid function; and more.
The screenings are accessible for wheelchairs and those with trouble walking. Free parking is available.
Packages start at $149, but consultants will work with people to create a package that is right for them based on their age and risk factors.
Also, people can ask about the Wellness Gold Membership Program, which allows customers to get all of the screenings they need now but pay $19.95 a month.
For information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 877-237-1287 or visit lifelinescreening.com.
Preregistration is required.
