    Queens, NY, March 25, 2013 -- On Monday, April 15, NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. and Integrated Medical Foundation are cosponsors of a free prostate cancer screening done by Dr. Riccardo Ricciardi from Advanced Urology Centers of New York – Flushing West. The screening is open to men ages 40 and older who have not been previously treated for prostate cancer, regardless of whether they have insurance. Appointments are recommended;  however, walk-ins are accepted.

     

    The event will take place at Martin Luther High School, 60-02 Maspeth Avenue in Maspeth, from 4 PM – 6 PM. 


    The health check-up will include a PSA blood test and a digital rectal exam. The patients will be notified of the testing results by bringing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. It is important for patients to also bring their physician’s name and address on a separate paper. Patients must also bring a photo ID with an address (e.g., driver’s license). 


    To make an appointment, please contact Senator Addabbo’s office at 718-738-1111. There is a parking lot located at the left of the main entrance. All guests must enter through the high school’s front doors located at 60-02 Maspeth Avenue. For more information about prostate cancer, visit www.IMFCARES.org .
