Life Line Screening Joins Center for Health Transformation

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 24, 2010 -- The Center for Health Transformation (CHT) announced today that Life Line Screening has joined its membership.

By partnering with local institutions such as town halls, libraries and community centers, who host the events, Life Line Screening brings an array of preventive screenings and services directly into local communities, making them convenient and affordable.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States, and stroke, by itself, is number three. Some 800,000 people a year have a stroke.
