The Mammography Van Is Coming To Our Area

   • Wednesday, December 9, 2020 • 8:10 AM to 12:00 PM •

Stop & Shop Plaza Parking Lot – East Park Ave., Long Beach

 Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford is 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, you will need a prescription for the exam from your doctor (if you have health insurance) and must 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.

 COVID 19 screening guidelines:

All patients MUST have their temperature checked upon entry, fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire and wear a face covering during the screening.

 Patients MUST cancel appointment if they had any of the following symptoms within two weeks prior to the screening: Fever greater than 100°,  persistent cough, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, new shortness of breath, muscles aches and/or if they have been in close contact with anyone who has been confirmed with COVID 19 in the last 2 weeks, or if they have travelled outside New York State in the last 2 weeks.

 Appointments are required and are scheduled 

on a First Come, First Served Basis
