On Friday, October 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the East Hampton Healthcare Foundation and Southampton Hospital will co-sponsor “Pink Friday,” a health fair in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event will be held at the Most Holy Trinity School, 77 Buell Lane in East Hampton.
Educational information on early detection and prevention will be available and attendees may make appointments for no-cost mammogram and pap tests – for uninsured women over the age of 40. Other highlights will include free flu shots, free health screenings – cholesterol, blood pressure, HIV, and colorectal – and a stress relief circle.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak with health insurance representatives and a nutrition educator, and information will be available for East Hampton Town’s Human Services programs, the HRHCare program, the Retreat services, the Tick-Bone Disease Resource Center at Southampton Hospital, the PSEG Long Island Residential Energy Affordability Partnership Program, and food stamps. Healthy refreshments will be served.
The entire community is invited to this event and encouraged to wear pink to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness. For more information, call (631) 329-2425.
