• Thursday, June 11, 2015 • 8:45 AM to 12:00 Noon •
Glen Head Community Center – 200 Glen Head Rd., Glen Head
Legislator Donald MacKenzie is 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 forty. 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 MacKenzie’s office at (516) 571-6218.

Assemblyman Michael Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head) is hosting a “Shed the Meds” public awareness event on Friday, June 6 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Glen Head Community Center. The event, sponsored by the Nassau County Police Department, provides a secure environment for residents to safely dispose of unused prescription drugs. As a strong advocate for eliminating prescription-drug abuse, Montesano views this event as an opportunity to promote public health and keep prescription drugs out of the hands of young children and other vulnerable populations.
“People don’t often realize the risk they take by disposing of their prescription drugs by pouring them down drains or flushing them down a toilet in their homes. We have learned that these methods of disposal have the potential to greatly affect our environment in a negative way,” said Montesano. “Shed the Meds gives our residents the chance to get rid of unused prescription drugs in a safe environment under the supervision of the Nassau County Police Department and help reduce the misuse of potentially harmful drugs.
“To anyone who has unused or unwanted prescription drugs in their possession, I highly advise participating in this event. We can ensure a safer community by joining forces and working together to make a difference.”
