Free prostate cancer being sponsored by lawmaker in conjunction with the Integrated Medical Foundation and Bostwick Laboratories at Wantagh American Legion Hall on Oct .11

State Sen. Charles Fuschillo, R-Merrick, in conjunction with the Integrated Medical Foundation and Bostwick Laboratories, will be sponsoring a free prostate cancer screening program in Wantagh.

The free screening program will be held on Oct. 11 between 4-6 p.m. at the Wantagh American Legion, which is located at 3484 Park Avenue, Wantagh. The free screenings will be conducted by Dr. Theodore Felderman.

The Integrated Medical Foundation’s guidelines for the program are as follows:

  • Open to all men over the age of 40 who have not previously been diagnosed with prostate cancer, regardless of whether or not they have insurance;
  • Screenings will include a PSA blood test and a digital rectal exam;
  • Men who will be getting screened must bring a photo identification containing an address, such as a driver’s license;
  • Patients wishing to be notified of the exam results should bring two stamped envelopes: one addressed to themselves and the other to their doctor.

Appointments are recommended but walk-ins will be accepted.
Screening appointments will be scheduled on a first come, first served
basis. Men who would like to schedule an appointment for a free prostate
cancer screening should call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.

This is where all our hard earned money is going! Our taxes pay for this program so the politician can get his or her name in the paper.

Stop using taxpayer dollars for programs that are not needed. People should have the personal responsibility to take care of their own health. Not Government! The State is broke, the County is broke, yet we still fund programs inour quest to have a utopian society. I just received a giant mailer from this Senator yesterday about some more programs, including transportation to and from said program. Yet our elected non representing representatives cannot fix our roads,bridges etc... Government is broken, and we get more programs.
