BOUNTIFUL -- Life Line will be screening area residents to reduce their risk of having a stroke, Oct. 31. The community screenings will be at the American Legion at 52 W. 200 South in Bountiful. The screenings last anywhere from 10 minutes or less and involve ultrasound technology.

Health officials will scan for potential health problems related to blocked arteries which can lead to a stroke, which can lead to a ruptured aorta; and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which are a strong predictor of heart disease.

A complete vascular screening is $109. To add an osteoporosis screening residents would pay an additional $20.

A stroke, also known as a "brain attack," is ranked as the third leading killer in the world and second among women.

Preventive screenings can reduce the risk of having a stroke.
