Protect your health by finding out your risk of having a stroke by participating in the Life Line Screening that will be at First Baptist Church Chandler on Tuesday, September 3. Through ultrasound we evaluate the carotid arteries for the buildup of fatty plaque, which is the leading cause of stroke.

Please note that you must sign up by calling the special Helping Hands registration number, which is 1-800-324-9458, or by visiting helpinghandsfor health.com.
