Legislator Kennedy Announces NUMC Mammography Van Coming to Farmingdale

Legislator James D. Kennedy is sponsoring the 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.

 

Thursday, August 2, 2018 • 8:45 AM to 12:00 Noon
Ellsworth W. Allen Park – 45 Motor Ave., Farmingdale

 

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.

 

Appointments are required and are scheduled on a first come, first served basis.  For additional information or to make an appointment, please contact Legislator Kennedy’s office at (516) 571-6212 or jkennedy@nassaucountyny.gov.
