Residents living in and around the Susquehanna, PA community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or a serious bone fracture. Life Line Screening will be at Susquehanna United Methodist Church on January 23. The site is located at Main Street in Susquehanna. Appointments will begin at 9:00 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is ranked as the third leading killer in the world, and the leading cause of nursing home admissions. Stroke often occurs without warning. The good news is that painless screening can help identify problems that can lead to stroke before it is too late.
Screenings are fast, painless and low cost. They test for blocked carotid arteries, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs. Bone density screening is also offered to assess the risk of osteoporosis.
These screenings are important because of the silent and often debilitating nature of the conditions. The majority of strokes are caused by plaque buildup in the carotid arteries. The abdominal aorta is the largest artery in the body, and a weakness in the walls of the artery can cause a ballooning called an aneurysm, which can rupture. A ruptured aneurysm is generally fatal. Peripheral arterial disease or PAD is also known as “hardening of the arteries.” Sufferers have a 4-6 fold increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Risk is evaluated through a measurement called the “Ankle-Brachial Index,” which is obtained by reading the systolic pressure in the ankle and arm.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
On Sunday, January 20 at 4 p.m., a potluck supper is planned for The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday at the First Universalist Church in Brooklyn. Gathering around tables for an informal meal always celebrates the true spirit of togetherness and community. Dr. King, who called our nation to work for ways to cross barriers and build bridges among people, communities, and nations was so much a part of his legacy.
Food is always plentiful at potluck occasions, so whether you bring a dish or not, join for the spirit of King’s life, work and dreams. Supper will open with quotations from Dr. King’s speeches and several local instrumentalists will perform during the supper. Join for warm conversations and new friendships. The public is welcome. For further information call Pastor Christianson at 289-4603.
