Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D-Glen Cove) is partnering with NuHealth to bring the breast cancer screening van to the Glen Cove Boys and Girls Club on Thursday, Sept. 15.
Free mammograms will be made available to women over the age of 40. Appointments include a breast exam from a nurse, a mammography and self-examination instructions.
Appointments are required and mammograms are free for uninsured women based on eligibility guidelines. Women with health insurance may be required to make a copayment. Women who have gone more than a year since their last mammogram will be required to get a prescription from their doctor (if they have insurance) and provide any past films (if available).
For more information and to make an appointment, contact Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton’s office at (516) 571-6211 or [email protected].
