Regular breast cancer screenings are critical because early detection can save lives, according to Health Quest Medical Practice Midwife Julie Denney. That’s why Northern Dutchess Hospital teamed up with Cancer Services Program of the Hudson Valley to offer Breast Cancer Screenings from 2:30-5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the hospital, 6511 Springbrook Ave.

Women, age 50 to 74, with no health insurance or who are underinsured may be eligible for this community-benefit event. The screening includes a breast exam and 3-D mammogram in the women’s imaging center at the hospital.

An appointment is required. Space is limited. The Cancer Services Program of the Hudson Valley will schedule appointments at 855-277-4482 and pay for eligible screenings. For directions, parking information and general questions, call 845-871-1720 ext. 1 (TTY 1-800-421-1220).
