Trinity Health Partner at Trinity Regional Medical Center has openings available for the stroke, AAA, peripheral vascular disease and bone density (a screening for osteoporosis) screens scheduled July 11.

Screens are held in the cardiac rehab area at Trinity. The stroke screen consists of a risk factor questionnaire, blood pressure and pulse checks, nonfasting cholesterol determination, three-lead EKG for heart regularity, and ultrasounds of the carotid arteries.

The abdominal aortic aneurysm screen includes the risk factor questionnaire, blood pressure and pulse checks and abdominal ultrasounds. Pressures in all four limbs are assessed to perform the peripheral vascular disease screen.

The cost for the Stroke, AAA and the PVD screenings is $35 each ($100 for all three screenings), and the bone density is $25. If all four screens are done, the cost is $115.

To schedule an appointment, or for questions, contact Dorothy Griffin, Trinity Health Partners, 574-6505.
