Raia Announces Adelphi Mother’s Day Mammography Campaign

May 15, 2006

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,C,I,WF-East Northport) is joining with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program to reach out to New Yorkers asking them to urge their loved ones to get mammograms.

“This program is very helpful and I strongly encourage women in my district to take advantage of the many benefits of the program,” said Raia.

For more information and to locate an accredited mammography facility in Long Island, call the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program at 800-877-8077. Callers with limited income can also find out about low cost and free mammograms through the hotline.

The hotline has been in existence for 25 years. It is a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work on Long Island and is funded by the New York State Legislature, Department of Health, grants and contributions. All services are free.
