New York State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) recently joined with the Integrated Medical Foundation and Bostwick Laboratories to sponsor a free prostate cancer screening program at the Freeport Library. Over 70 men took advantage of the program and received a free screening.

Prostate Cancer is the second most common cancer in men, with approximately one in six men being diagnosed with it in their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. Early detection is vital to successfully treating prostate cancer.

“Getting screened is vital in order to detect prostate cancer early, when it is most treatable. I thank the Integrated Medical Foundation, Bostwick Laboratories, and the Freeport Library for partnering with me to offer this important service to our residents,” said Senator Fuschillo.

Men who were unable to participate in the screening program but would like additional information can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
