Fuschillo, Jr (R-Merrick) and NuHealth/Nassau Health Care Corporation. Patients and their doctors will be notified of the results.
The program is open to all Nassau County women ages 40+. Those covered by private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid will be required to bring their information card and a prescription from their physician for screening.
