Health screenings will be conducted this month at a Newnan church sponsored by a local physician’s group to check for chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.

Scheduled for Sept. 14 at Newnan First United Methodist Church at 33 Greenville St., the Life Line Screening is sponsored by Atlanta Vascular Specialists.

The noninvasive tests can look for:

  • The level of plaque buildup in your arteries, related to 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

Packages of tests start at $149, and consultants will offer recommendations on which tests to consider based on age and risk factors. Pre-registration is required by calling 1-877-237-1287 or visiting www.lifelinescreening.com
