Legislator Bynoe Partners with NuHealth to Host Breast Cancer Screenings in Westbury and Lakeview

Share

Nassau County Legislator Siela A. Bynoe (D – Westbury) is partnering with NuHealth to bring the breast cancer screening van to Magnolia Gardens in Westbury on Monday, Oct. 31 and the Lakeview Public Library on Thursday, Nov. 17. At both events, 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).

“As a 19-year breast cancer survivor, I know firsthand how important early detection is,” Legislator Bynoe said. “That is why I am pleased to once again partner with NuHealth to bring NUMC’s Mammography Van to Westbury and Lakeview to ensure that eligible women over age 40 can receive cancer screening services at no out-of-pocket cost. I encourage you to reach out to my office and schedule an appointment today.”
