The NuHealth/NUMC Mobile Mammography Van is Coming to the 17th Legislative District

   • Thursday, April 20, 2023 • 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM •

Cantiague Park – 480 West John St., Hicksville


Nassau County Legislators Rose Marie Walker and Laura Schaefer are sponsoring the NuHealth/Nassau University Medical Center Mobile Mammography Van to visit our neighborhood to provide breast cancer screenings for women over age forty. The screening will include a breast examination by a nurse, a mammography and instructions for breast self-examination at home.


If it’s been at least a year since your last mammography and you are planning to receive an exam, patients with insurance must bring a referral/prescription for the exam from their doctor (If you do not bring a referral/prescription, you cannot be seen). Patients must also provide any past exam films, if they are 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
