Women ages 50 and older can attend a Sept. 18 breast cancer screening event in Westbury.
The screening, scheduled from 8:45 a.m. to noon, is to be held at the Westbury Recreation Center at 348 Post Ave.
The event is sponsored by Nassau County Legis. Laura Schaefer (R-Westbury).
The Nassau University Medical Center Mammography Van will provide the examinations.
Visitors with insurance must bring a prescription for the exam, if their most recent exam was more than a year ago. Women who are uninsured can receive the exam for free, depending on eligibility guidelines.
To make an appointment -- which is required -- residents should call Schaefer’s office at 516-571-6214.
