THE NuHEALTH/ NUMC MOBILE MAMMOGRAPHY VAN IS COMING TO THE 17TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT

•Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2023 • 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM•
Ellsworth W. Allen Park – 45 Motor Ave., Farmingdale

Nassau County Legislators Rose Marie Walker and James Kennedy 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

For additional information or to make an appointment, please contact Legislator Walker’s office:
