Residents living in and around Lander can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. The Inn at Lander-Best Western, 260 Grandview Drive, will host Life Line Screening on May 17. Four key points every person needs to know: - Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability - 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs before their stroke - Preventive ultrasound screenings can help people avoid a stroke - Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit www.life linescreening.com. Pre-registration is required. Screenings 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.
