First Congregational holds Lifeline screening
EAST LONGMEADOW Residents living in and around the East Longmeadow community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. First Congregational Church will host Life Line Screening on March 22. The site is located at 7 Somers Road.
Four key points every person needs to know:
- Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability.
- Eighty percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke.
- Preventive ultrasound screenings can help people avoid a stroke.
- Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient.
