Life Line Screening Proudly Supports NBC's Skate for the Heart in Honor of Longtime Partner, Peggy Fleming
Date:1/31/2010

Community-based health organization Life Line Screening participated in Skate for the Heart, giving free preventive screenings to select friends and family members of participating skaters.

Independence, OH (PRWEB) January 31, 2010 -- In honor of longtime partner Peggy Fleming, Life Line Screening is proud to have supported Skate for the Heart, which aired on NBC on January 31st.

Life Line Screening provided free screenings for several friends and family members of participating skaters to say “thank you” to Peggy for her ongoing support for cardiovascular disease awareness.

Ms. Fleming filmed a commercial which aired during the special in which she talked about her personal story. Having lost her father and sister to cardiovascular disease at young ages, Ms Fleming hopes to raise awareness of screenings as a preventive strategy to save others the same heartache.

Life Line Screening provides preventive screenings in convenient community-based settings across the nation. Screening included ultrasound screenings for stroke prevention, including tests for carotid artery stenosis, atrial fibrillation, and systolic hypertension (high blood pressure). Other screenings check for peripheral arterial disease and abdominal aortic aneurysms.

According to the National Stroke Association, 80% of strokes are preventable. As Ms. Fleming says during the commercial, “If a screening could prevent a stroke, why wouldn’t you do it?”

About Life Line Screening
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings. The screenings are provided in comfortable, familiar community settings such as churches and community centers and are conducted by highly qualified healthcare professionals. The non-invasive, inexpensive and painless tests help people identify their risk for stroke, vascular diseases or osteoporosis early enough for their physician to begin preventive procedures.
