Legislator Troiano Brings Free Health Screening to Community
Legislator Robert Troiano (D-Westbury) knows the importance of everyone being in good health so he made all the arrangements for free screenings by the doctors and nurses of the St. Francis Hospital Community Outreach program. On Oct. 6, the hospital’s mobile health screening unit came to Kennedy Park in Hempstead and residents were able to obtain free screenings for cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart-related concerns. In just a four-hour period, more than 50 community residents received patient education and/or referrals.
