Life Line Screening at OSC on Thursday, June 10, 2021

Have you ever thought about the following?

• I want to see my grandchildren grow up.

• I want to continue living independently.

• I don’t want to be a burden on my family.

Preventive screenings can help, and Orcas Senior Center has partnered with Life Line Screening to provide these valuable screenings.

The mission of Life Line Screening is to provide advance, yet affordable and convenient health screenings that supplement your traditional healthcare. They can help make you aware of a previously silent, unrecognized problem that can now get treated at an early stage or confirm that you are on the right path and should continue your healthy habits.

Don’t let heart disease and stroke get in your way of the life you love. Call toll-free 1-888-653-6441, or text the word, “circle” to 797979 to schedule your health screening.

A package of 5 vital screenings is offered for only $149. If you call today to register, you will receive a $10 discount!
