Are you, or have you ever been, a smoker? Are you a male over 55? St. Paul Parish will host a Life Line Screening preventive health event on February 19 to scan for risk of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Life Line Screening uses hospital quality ultrasound technology to detect an enlargement or weak area in the main blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Warning signs of AAA often go unidentified and if ruptured, abdominal aortic aneurysms are 80-95% fatal. Call 1-888-653-6441 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. for more information or to pre-register.
