Sponsored by the NIU Employee Assistance Program, staff from Life Line Screening will provide that service from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28, in the Capitol Room of the Holmes Student Center.

Available screenings include:

  • Stroke/Carotid Artery, $60;
  • Heart Rhythm (Atrial Fibrillation) $60;
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, $60;
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease $60; or
  • Osteoporosis Risk Assessment $35.

Save money by scheduling one of the package options: $129 for four screenings or $159 for five screenings. Call 1-888-653-6441 to schedule an appointment.
