Mobile mammography van coming to Elmont

Posted

A mobile mammography van will be parked outside of Dani’s Strike Zone, at 20 Village Ave. in Elmont, on Dec. 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for women 40 or older who have not had a mammogram in the past year, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, have never been diagnosed with breast cancer and do not have any implants or breast issues. Those with health insurance must also get a prescription for the mammogram.

Appointments are required, and on the day of one’s appointment they should not wear deodorant, perfume, powders, lotions or creams on the breast area. Women should also bring a photo ID and an insurance card, if they have insurance, and are required to wear a mask.

To schedule an appointment, call (516) 599 - 2972.
