LifeLine Screenings for stroke and osteoporosis will be offered Jan. 23, 2009 at the Jerusalem Township Community Hall.

Screenings are painless and accurate. They help identify potential health problems 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 and is appropriate for both men and women.

As one might expect, a person’s BAC increases with each drink. The level is also affected by weight, gender, how fast drinks are consumed and the amount of food in a person’s stomach.
