Stroke & Cardiovascular Disease Awareness



Did you know that every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke? According to the CDC, that was just in 2022 alone. Fortunately, 80% of cardiovascular disease and stroke is preventable, according to the American Heart Association. If you are aged 40 or older, you should consider getting a screening for stroke and cardiovascular disease risks.


Screenings offer peace of mind or early detection of stroke and cardiovascular disease risks. Not only that, they're easy, affordable, and non-invasive. Plus, you can get one done at over 14,000 community-based locations across the U.S., and our friends at Life Line Screening can help.


In business since 1993, Life Line Screening is the nation's leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, with over 10 million people screened. In 2022, they identified about 9,000 critical results, as well as an additional 36,000 abnormal results that enable people like you to understand your risks and work with your doctor for a better quality of life.


Using state-of-the-art ultrasound technology with highly skilled sonographers, you can take advantage of Life Line Screening's package, which includes 4 screenings for stroke and cardiovascular disease risks. You'll be screened for Carotid Artery Disease, Atrial Fibrillation, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms, and Peripheral Artery Disease.


These are the same screenings your doctor could order for you, but generally, health insurance doesn't cover them until symptoms are present. And of course, it may be too late because your first symptom could be a stroke. And better yet, screenings are affordable!


Through Life Line Screening, most screening results are reviewed by a board-certified physician before results are shared with you within 7 days after the screening via an online, secure portal. Life Line Screening encourages you to share your results with your physician.


If a critical finding is identified, you'll be notified on the day of the screening, so you can fast-track a treatment plan with your doctor.


Book a screening appointment for you and a loved one today at LifeLineScreening.com and get peace of mind or early detection. After all, a simple screening can be worth a lifetime.
