New Trier Township to Sponsor Screenings That Can Help Save Your Life


WINNETKA, June 30, 2010 – New Trier Township will sponsor a preventive health screening in conjunction with Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings on Thursday, July  22nd at the Winnetka Woman’s Club located at 485 Maple in Winnetka. Appointments begin at 9:00 a.m.
"The mission of Township government is to provide for the well-being of our residents and we see this as an affordable, non-invasive way to provide health screenings to residents," said Patricia B. Cantor, Supervisor, New Trier Township Government. 
Screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries, which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms, which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease; and atrial fibrillation or irregular heartbeat, which is closely tied to stroke risk.
The fee for the Stroke, Vascular Disease and Heart Rhythm Package is $139. All four screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. To register for an appointment, or for more information, call 1-800-324-1851.
