Local parish to host health screenings

Life Line Screening Radiology LLC will conduct several health screenings Oct. 3 at St. Joseph Church, 111 S. Seneca St., Weedsport. St. Joseph Church is part of Our Lady of the Snow Parish in northern Cayuga County.

The organization will offer three different types of screenings to detect arterial abnormalities, which can cause disrupted blood flow. The first screening will check the carotid arteries in the neck for plaque buildup, which is the leading cause of strokes. The second screening checks for an aneurysm in the abdominal aorta, and the third checks for peripheral arterial disease, or plaque buildup, which is linked to coronary-artery disease.

Each screening costs $45. Life Line Screening Radiology also is offering an osteoporosis screening for $35.

To pre-register for the screenings, call 800/636-0418.
