Residents living in and around the Buffalo area can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and other chronic, serious conditions with screenings by Life Line Screening, according to a news release. Buffalo Christian Church will host this community event June 13. The church is at 502 N. Maple St. in Buffalo.

Screenings can check for the following:

The level of plaque buildup in arteries, related to one’s risk for heart disease, stroke and overall vascular health.

HDL and LDL cholesterol levels.

Diabetes risk.

Bone density as a risk for possible osteoporosis.

Kidney and thyroid function, and more.

“Screenings are affordable, convenient and accessible for wheelchairs and those with trouble walking,” according to a news release.

Free parking is also available.  

Packages start at $149, but consultants will work with participants to create a package that is right for them, based on their age and risk factors. Also, participants can ask about the Wellness Gold Membership Program, which allows customers to get all the screenings they need now but pay $19.95 a month.

For more information, call (877) 237-1287 or go to lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
