In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, State Senator Kevin Parker in partnership with The Brookdale University Hospital, NYU Langone Health, and the Mount Sinai Health System, hosted the “Free Mammography Clinics,” a series of free breast cancer screenings across East and Central Brooklyn. The screening clinics took place from October 20 to October 28. Laurie Margolies, MD, director of breast imaging at the Dubin Breast Center at the Tisch Cancer Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai was thrilled with the huge turnout of women. “Encouraging women to participate in screenings right in their communities is a pivotal goal of the Mount Sinai mobile mammography program, and Senator Parker’s mammography clinics afforded us the opportunity to do just that,” said Dr. Margolies.
