Purpose

     Senator Jack M. Martins (R-Mineola), in conjunction with the Integrated Medical Foundation and Shiel Medical Labs, will be sponsoring a free prostate cancer PSA test program in Westbury. The free PSA blood tests will be provided on Tuesday, August 5th between 4 pm and 6 pm at the Westbury Community Center, located at 360 Post Avenue in Westbury.

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

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

     · Each patient will receive a free PSA blood test;

     · Men who will be participating in the program must bring a photo ID containing an address, such as a driver’s license;

     · Patients must bring a self addressed, stamped envelope to be notified of the PSA blood test results.

     Appointments for the free PSA blood tests will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Men who would like to schedule an appointment for a free prostate cancer PSA test should call Senator Martins’ office at 516-746-5924.
