New Mammogram Text Line

iphone-926235_640New York State has a new “text line” to help women get access to breast cancer screenings. Governor Andrew Cuomo officially launched the text line recently and Senator Jack M. Martins has been informing residents.

reply with a message containing nearby screening locations that offer
extended hours.
