North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the North Hempstead Town Board are proud to announce that Project Independence, the town’s innovative “aging-in-place” initiative, is once again partnering with St. Francis Hospital’s Community Outreach Program to provide residents with free health screenings.

“Project Independence along with the St. Francis Hospital Community Outreach Program is proud to be hosting free health screenings for our residents,” said Bosworth. “We hope by including locations throughout the town we are able to provide access to high quality healthcare to the local community”
