Davis Partners with NuHealth to Host Breast Cancer Screenings at Kennedy Park in Hempstead

WHAT: Nassau County Legislator Scott M. Davis (D – Rockville Centre) is partnering with NuHealth and the Breast Imaging Center at Nassau University Medical Center to bring the breast cancer screening van to Kennedy Memorial Park in Hempstead from 8:10 - 10:25 a.m. on Wednesday, May 15. Appointments include a breast exam from a nurse, a mammography, and self-examination instructions.

Women over age 40 who do not have insurance may be eligible for free mammograms through the Cancer Services Program. Women with health insurance may be required to make a copayment. Patients who have gone more than a year since their last mammogram will be required to get a prescription from their doctor for a bilateral mammogram (if they have insurance) and provide any past films/CDs (if available). Photo ID, proof of address, and an insurance card (if available) are required.

“By partnering with NuHealth to bring the mammography van to Kennedy Memorial Park, we are taking an important step to ensure that every woman has access to the medical resources they need to proactively monitor their health,” Legislator Davis said. “Early detection saves lives, and I encourage any woman who is in need of a mammogram to take advantage of this important opportunity.”
