Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick), in conjunction with the Integrated Medical Foundation, will be sponsoring a free prostate cancer screening program in Lindenhurst.

     The free screening program will be held on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 between 4 pm and 6 pm at the Lindenhurst Community Center, which is located at 793 Buffalo Avenue, Lindenhurst.

     The Integrated Medical Foundation’s guidelines for the program are as follows:

     • Open to all men over the age of 40 who have not previously been diagnosed with prostate cancer, regardless of whether or not they have insurance;

     • Screenings will include a PSA blood test and a digital rectal exam;

     • Men who will be getting screened must bring a photo ID containing an address, such as a driver’s license;

     • Patients wishing to be notified of the exam results should bring 2 stamped envelopes: one addressed to themselves and the other to their doctor.

     Appointments are recommended but walk-ins will be accepted. Screening appointments will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Men who would like to schedule an appointment for a free prostate cancer screening should call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
