Farm Bureau Members Receive Discount on Stroke Screenings

Everyone has risk associated with Stroke. Knowing your risk and getting a fast and painless stroke screening are your best defenses against a life threatening or life-altering event. 

Many people go through their daily routines without realizing how close they are to suffering a life-threatening stroke.  And, unfortunately, most people don’t have symptoms or signs before a stroke occurs. That’s why stroke is commonly referred to as the “silent killer,” ranking as the third leading cause of death in the United States.

 

But new mobile technology is available today to help individuals determine their stroke risk in advance so they can take steps to improve their health. 

 

Stroke Detection Plus will be screening at the Prouty Building, 435 South Main Street, Princeton, on Wednesday, October 30, from 9:00-4:00.  

 

A complete wellness profile (ultrasound screening for Stroke, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, Peripheral Arterial Disease, and Osteoporosis) is only $100 for Farm Bureau members. That is a $35 savings over the $135 the general public will pay. Now, add an EKG to detect Atrial Fibrillation for just an additional $35.

 

Appointments are necessary. To set up an appointment, call toll-free 1-877-732-8258.

A two-minute virtual tour of the screenings can be found at  www.strokedetectionplus.com

 

People over the age of 40 are encouraged to get tested especially with one or more of the following risk factors: high blood pressure, diabetes, more than 20 pounds overweight, smoke, have high cholesterol, inactive lifestyle, or have a family medical history of heart disease or stroke.

 

A stroke screening will help to identify these blood flow blockages. Stroke Detection Plus, a mobile vascular screening company, uses ultrasound technology to find blockages in the body’s blood vessels that could lead to a stroke.  Call today for your appointment!
