Health testing

The community is invited to St. Mary's Catholic Church Fatima Hall, 224 W. Washington St., Hagerstown, at 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 8, for health tests.

Find out your risk for a stroke by having a stroke screening. The screening uses painless ultrasound technology to examine the carotid arteries in your neck for plaque build up, which can lead to a stroke. Health care providers will also offer an ultrasound test that looks for abdominal aneurysms on the aorta of the abdomen, a screening for poor leg circulation and an osteoporosis bone density test for men and women. The screenings are available for a minimal charge.

The results will be given directly to you and you are referred back to your own doctor.

Call 1-800-446-0925 for an appointment or information. Registration is limited to 50 people.
