Legislator Rose Marie Walker 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.
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 • 8:45 AM to 12:00 Noon
Mid Island Y JCC – 45 Manetto Hill Rd., Plainview
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 Walker’s office at (516) 571-6217 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Rebecca M. Alesia announces that the Town will host an informational meeting on Tuesday, September 20, to gather community input regarding the future use of parkland at the location of the recently-approved Country Pointe project. The meeting will take place at the Mid Island Y JCC, beginning at 7 p.m.
“In connection with the approval of the Country Pointe at Plainview mixed-use development, the Town is receiving donation of a 58-acre parcel at the south end of the site, located at the intersection of Round Swamp and Old Country Roads,” Councilwoman Alesia said. “Although many wide-ranging ideas have already been voiced for this parcel, no final decision has yet been made by the Town regarding its future use, and we are at the step of gathering community input to determine the best use of this land.”
The Councilwoman noted that the meeting will start with a brief presentation to describe the existing characteristics of the 58-acre parcel, followed by the opportunity for interested residents to share their suggestions and comments.
“The Town is excited to enter into the next phase of this project, and we look forward to hearing the suggestions of our residents as to what they would like to see on this parcel,” Councilwoman Alesia said.
