Civic leaders and activists from local communities in Suffolk County joined Senator Brian X. Foley (D – Blue Point) as he called for increased participation in the U.S Census. The 2010 Census awareness event, which took place at the Brentwood Public Library, was centered around relaying the importance of Census participation and giving community members the tools necessary to educate their friends, family, and neighbors about the Census.
Senator Brian X. Foley (D – Blue Point) announced today that he has been able to secure funding for Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center.
The $252,000 capital grant that Senator Foley provided, which will be administered through the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), will be used to upgrade the facility’s imaging equipment. The current, outdated equipment will be replaced with newer technology that will improve the images obtained and reduce exposure to radiation.
