As a registered nurse, Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell understands the importance of healthcare issues.  When detected early and confined to the breast, survival rate of breast cancer is 98%.   As we celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness in October, Ms. O’Connell would like to remind Nassau County women to get their annual mammograms. 

Ms. O’Connell has been involved for many years with the Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline.  She advises women to call the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program at 1-800-877-8077 for further information and to find an accredited mammography facility
