Roosevelt Island Free Mammograms on Saturday March 22 - Will Colonoscopies Be Next?

The Pink Baseball Bats were part of MLB's Mother's Day effort to raise awareness of Breast Cancer. Image from The 700 Level.

When: Saturday, March 22, 2008 starting at 9:00am Where: Look for the Mammography Van at 591 Main Street An appointment is necessary.
The Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation, The American-Italian Cancer Foundation & the Women's Outreach Network invite you to have a Free Mammogram
For more information, please call Erica @ 212-832-4540
To all wives, moms, daughters, grandmother, sisters, and aunts get a check up for yourselves and family. Here's some more information.

Hey, it's probably too expensive but how about some free colonoscopies (You Tube video of procedure here) for the guys. Ugh, Ugh, Ugh!

UPDATE from RIOC - 3/20:
There has been such an overwhelming response for appointments to receive free mammograms on Saturday March 22nd that I scheduled an additional date, May 17th- which is also Health and Fitness Day, for individuals who could not get an appointment this Saturday. The start of appointments for this weekend has also been changed from 9:00am to 8:00am. I'll look into the colonoscopies.
Great work by RIOC in providing such a valuable public health service. I wonder if the Cornell Medical Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering hospitals, which have such a large residential presence on Roosevelt Island, are helping out?
