FALLBROOK - Residents living in and around the greater Fallbrook area can be screened to identify and potentially reduce the risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. On May 13, Life Line Screening will be at Zion Lutheran Church, 1405 East Fallbrook St. to provide those screenings.

A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.
