[ARCHIVED] 08/05/14 Legislator Richard J. Nicolello & Senator Jack Martins Announce Breast Cancer Screening

• Tuesday, September 16, 2014 • 8:45 AM to 12:00 Noon •
Clinton G. Martin Park – Marcus Ave. & New Hyde Park Rd., New Hyde Park

Legislator Richard J. Nicolello and Senator Jack Martins are pleased to announce that the Nassau University Medical Center Mobile Mammography Van will be coming to our 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 Nicolello’s office at (516) 571-6209
