Legislator Ford is pleased to announce that the Nassau University Medical Center Mammography Van will be coming to our area to provide breast cancer screenings for women over 40. The screening will include a breast examination by a nurse, a mammography and instructions for breast self-examination.
“The best tools in the fight against cancer are education and early detection.” says Legislator Ford. If 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.
For additional information or to make an appointment, please call Legislator Ford’s office at (516) 571-6204
