The screenings will be available to eligible women ages 40 and older who have not had a mammogram in the past year. All insurance plans will be accepted, and co-pays and deductibles will be waived. The mammograms will be free to uninsured women.
An appointment must be made to get screened. To make an appointment, call (800) 564-6868.
“Mammograms are important preventative measures for women, which is why we are happy to provide this mobile screening to encourage Staten Island women to take charge of their health and make sure they get their annual mammogram,” said BP Oddo. “The earlier cancer is found, the easier it is to treat. Women should speak to their doctors to determine whether their risk factors require such screening.”
The screenings will be funded by the New York State Cancer Services Program and the Cancer Services Program of Staten Island.
