Life Line Screening Joins the Vascular Disease Foundation as Corporate Partner

The Vascular Disease Foundation has a new partner and sponsor in Life Line Screening. The two companies aim to further educate the population about vascular disease and vascular testing services like abdominal aortic aneurysm and peripheral arterial disease screening. Life Line Screening will distribute the foundation’s educational publications and provide online registration so that its customers can easily donate money to the foundation.

Lakewood, CO (PRWEB) December 10, 2009 -- The Vascular Disease Foundation (VDF) announced today that Life Line Screening, Inc. (LLS) has become a corporate partner and joined the foundation as a sponsor.

This partnership brings together the combined strengths of VDF’s unparalleled expertise in vascular disease and educational resources with Life Line Screening’s unique vascular testing service, commitment to quality service, and marketing capability to help VDF spread the message about vascular health.

As the leading provider of community-based health screenings in the country, Life Line Screening will provide online registration to enable their customers to make a tax-deductable donation to VDF. This will extend VDF’s message to thousands and help raise awareness of vascular health. In addition, Life Line Screening will distribute VDF education and information publications at each of their screening sites which serve over 800,000 clients.

“The marketing and community-based nature of Life Line Screening provides us with high exposure to a critical audience at risk for vascular disease,” said Sheryl Benjamin, Executive Director of VDF. “VDF strives to educate the public about risk factors, symptoms and treatments for vascular disease. Reaching the public is challenging. Life Line Screening, with its marketing expertise and willingness to use its extensive network and resources, will be a powerful partner to help those at risk for vascular disease to seek detection and treatment,” said Benjamin.

“Our sponsorship of the Vascular Disease Foundation demonstrates our continued commitment to public education about vascular diseases. We hope that by combining our resources we can reach even more people and facilitate the dissemination of accurate, potentially life-saving information to those who are often in the dark about vascular health and how to protect it,” said Colin Scully, CEO of Life Line Screening.

Founded in 1998, VDF is the country’s leading nonprofit resource for information and education for the public on the diagnosis and management of vascular disease.
