On Saturday June 5, New York State Senator Frank Padavan (Queens) and the American-Italian Cancer Foundation hosted a mammography screening event outside of Padavan’s District Office in Bellerose. The no-cost screenings took place on the Foundation’s fully contained mobile mammography van. Both insured and un-insured women who took part in the event incurred no-out-of-pocket expenses and no co-pays. The event was the second in a series throughout 2010. Padavan hosted an event back in April and will host another one in November.
