Life Line Screening – Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Have you heard about it?

  • 8 to 12 million people in the US have PAD, and unfortunately only half know it
  • Only 10% of persons with PAD have classic symptoms
  • Risk factors include smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol

PAD screenings are normally not part of a routine physical. Protect your health by finding out your risk of PAD by registering for an ankle brachial index test. Zion will be hosting a Life Line Screening preventive health event in the Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, October 16.

Register today for the Stroke, Vascular & Heart Rhythm package. Packages range from only $139.00 – $159.00, which includes four screenings: carotid artery, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease and atrial fibrillation. Register today by calling 1-800-324-9458. Not only will you receive $10 off any package priced $139 and up, but Zion Lutheran Church will ALSO receive a $10 donation for any member who signs up through this number and attends the screening!
