What is Lifeline Screening?
They are a preventative health screening company that specializes in identifying health issues before they become serious. To date they’ve detected over 2.7 million cases of potential atherosclerosis and plaque buildup, revealed over 2.2 million cases of elevated heart attack and stroke risk, identified over 120,000 cases of critical vascular disease and screened over 8 million people since 1996.
