Assemblyman Ed Ra (21st Assembly District), in conjunction with Nassau University Medical Center, will be hosting his first annual mammogram screening this Friday, October 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at the Floral Park Recreation Center. In conjunction with Liz’s Day, Ra is encouraging women who are over 40 years old and have not had a mammogram in over a year, as well as women who are asymptomatic, to attend this event.
“Even without cancer-like symptoms, it is important for women concerned about their health to get into a routine of a regular exam,” said Ra. “I’m proud to have Nassau University Medical Center join me to kick off Liz’s Day by offering screenings, information from specialists, and important steps you can take for the early detection of breast cancer.”
Liz’s Day, which will be held on October 15 also at the Floral Park Recreation Center, is named in memory of Elizabeth McFarland, who lost her battle with breast cancer. To date, Liz’s Day has raised over $500,000 for cancer research at Cold Spring Harbor Labs.
