On Thursday, November 17th, Assemblymember Jim Brennan is co-sponsoring free breast cancer screenings in cooperation with the American Italian Cancer Foundation in its Mobile Care Clinic. The foundation has been offering free mammograms since 1987.
A free digital mammogram--an x-ray of the breast--and a clinical breast exam will be provided to women aged forty or older who live in New York City and who haven't had a mammogram in the past twelve months.
No co-pays are required; deductibles are waived.
Medical services will be provided by Multi-Diagnostic Services.
The screenings will be done at Assemblymember Brennan's district offices:
- 416 7th Avenue, between 14th and 13th streets, from 9:00 a.m. to noon,
- 1414 Cortelyou Road, between Rugby and Marlborough roads (map), just a few blocks east of Coney Island Avenue, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
To make an appointment at either office, call the American Italian Cancer Foundation at (877) 628-9090.
