The Amagansett Presbyterian Church and the Stony Brook University School of Health Professions will have a free health fair on April 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Scoville Hall on Meeting House Lane. Screenings for blood pressure, vision, and blood sugar will be offered, along with information about tick prevention, asthma awareness, oral health, breast self-examination, and how to access health records online. Chair massages, children’s crafts and activities, and walking and balance testing will also be available.
High school students have been invited to meet health profession students and Stony Brook professors, learn health skills, and earn six to eight community service hours. Those seeking more information or who would like to volunteer have been asked to call 631-267-6404.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Stony Brook Medicine’s mobile mammography van will be at Scoville Hall for breast cancer screenings for women 40 and older who have not had a mammogram in the past year, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, do not have implants or breast issues, and have never been diagnosed with breast cancer. Screenings will be performed by New York State-registered radiologic technologists with advanced training in mammography. The 40-foot van has a waiting area, a private dressing room, and a complete exam room.
Appointments can be scheduled by calling 631-638-4135. Those with an appointment have been asked not to wear deodorant, perfume, powders, lotions, or creams on the breast area, and to have photo identification and, if insured, an insurance card.
