Lifeline will provide stroke and osteoporosis screening


The Tisbury Council on Aging at 34 Pine Tree Rd. in Vineyard Haven will host Life Line Screening on December 6th. Appointments will begin at 10 am.

The company uses ultrasound screenings to identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered for both men and women, according to a press release.

Packages start at $139. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit Pre-registration is required.
