Senator Comrie to Partner with American-Italian Cancer Foundation to Host Mammography Bus
What: No-cost mammography and clinical breast exam services
Who: Senator Leroy Comrie and the American-Italian Cancer Foundation
When: Thursday, August 29, 2019 between 9 AM and 4:30 PM
Where: Senator Leroy Comrie’s district office, 113-43 Farmers Blvd., St. Albans, NY (Transit: Q3 or Q83)
Why: Early detection of breast cancer saves lives. However, many in Senate District 14 and throughout the city lack access to high-quality mammography and clinical breast exam services.
For the last twenty-five years, the American-Italian Cancer Foundation has proudly provided these lifesaving services for economically disadvantaged and medically underserved women in the five boroughs.
Senator Comrie will host the American-Italian Cancer Foundation’s Mammogram bus in front of his district office on August 29, 2019. Services are by appointment only. Eligible participants include women between the ages of 40 and 79 who either have or do not have health insurance or who have not received a mammogram in the past 12 months. No co-pays are required & deductibles are waived. Uninsured patients are welcome.
To schedule an appointment, please call Senator Comrie’s office (718) 765-6359. Appointment availability is limited, and appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
