Senator Adams’ statement: “Midwives are governed by rigorous educational requirements and regulations, and they provide excellent maternity, gynecological, and primary health care for their clients. They are committed to providing safe care for women and infants.
Mobile Mammography Van will be at the Office of NYS Senator Eric Adams (572 Flatbush Avenue) on Thursday, August 25, 2011.
Medical services will be provided for women age 40+ who have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months.
For women with health insurance, the insurance will be billed for services. However, women will not be charged a co-pay and will not receive a bill.
For women without health insurance, services will be paid for by the Screening Partnerships of the NYS Cancer Services Program or through geneorus contributions by the American-Italian Cancer Foundation's donors.

Bill S.3111 gives parents of still born children the option to get birth certificates and name their children.
Senator Adams' states:
" I am heartened that Governor Cuomo has signed bill S. 3111 into law, as it provides a measure of compassion and solace to parents who have been subjected to an unfathomable set of circumstances. Over the past two and a half years I've met with parents that have suffered the cruel fate of having a stillborn child. No matter when the event transpired, they carry the pain as if it were yesterday.

Dear Constituents:The brisk winds of fall are blowing steadily, and as we near Thanksgiving, I would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous holiday. The Thanksgiving holiday is one where food takes center stage, and while indulging every now and then is no issue, it is important to monitor your food intake. As November has been designated as National Diabetes Awareness Month, I wish to take this time to educate everyone about the risk factors and warning signs of this disease.
