Free Breast Cancer Screenings Available At LIJ Medical Center

For women age 50 and older who are uninsured or underinsured, Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Medical Center offers free cancer screenings, including clinical breast exams and state-of-the-art mammograms.

While cancer screenings are offered year round, LIJ is encouraging eligible women in the community to reduce their risk for breast cancer and get screened during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. One in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.

LIJ Medical Center is able to offer free breast screening to eligible New York residents through the Nassau Cancer Services Program, which provides cancer screening, support and information.
