Legislators Denise Ford & Howard J. Kopel Proudly Announce

Breast Cancer Screenings from the NUMC Digital Mammography Van

• Wednesday, September 17, 2014 • 8:45 AM to 11:30 AM •

Hewlett/Woodmere Public Library – 1125 Broadway, Hewlett

Legislators Denise Ford and Howard J. Kopel are pleased to announce that the Nassau University Medical Center Mobile Mammography Van will be coming to the 5 Towns area to provide breast cancer screenings for women over age fifty.  The screening will include a breast examination by a nurse, a mammography and instructions for breast self-examination.

If it’s been at least a year since your last mammography and you are planning to receive an exam, you will need a prescription for the exam from your doctor (if you have insurance) and must provide any past exam films, if available.  Women with health insurance will be required to make a co-payment.  The mammography is free for uninsured women, based on eligibility guidelines.

Appointments are required and are scheduled on a First Come, First Served Basis

For additional information or to make an appointment, please call Legislator Ford’s office at (516) 571-6204
