UnderAware Drive - Aug 1st through Aug 31st

HALI Community Wellness and Recovery Center is launching UnderAWARE starting August 1st, 2018 until August 31st. The HALI Community Wellness and Recovery Center will be running their new month-long campaign UnderAWARE, with hopes of collecting underwear, a necessity that most of us take for granted. The HALI “CWRC” team has set a goal for 100 t-shirts, 100 boxer briefs/shorts, 100 bras and 100 pairs of panties. The goal of our UnderAWARE drive is to, of course collect and grow our depleted supply of underwear, and also bring awareness and conversation around the fact that everyone deserves fresh, clean underwear.  

 

The UnderAWARE campaign will be running for the entire month of August. To discuss creating an underwear drive at your location, or for more information about this request, please call me at 631.234.1925 x378 or email: [email protected]

Catholic Health Services Lung Cancer Screening Program

Catholic Health Services now offers a Lung Cancer Screening Program for current or former smokers. Part of the American College of Radiology’s Lung Cancer Screening Registry, the initiative offers low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening for those at high risk of developing lung cancer.

 

Under the Medicare-approved eligibility criteria, people are eligible for a lung cancer screening program if they meet the following criteria:

 

  • Between the ages of 55 and 77
  • Have a smoking history of at least 1 pack per day for 30 years (or 2 packs daily for 15 years)
  • Are currently smoking or have quit smoking within the last 15 years
  • Currently have no signs or symptoms of lung cancer.

 

The painless, non-invasive LDCT scan takes just 10 to 15 minutes to complete and does not require fasting, injections or medications. Most insurances and Medicare cover annual screening for eligible patients.

 

In addition to coordinating follow-up care based on national guidelines and established evidence-based practices, the program’s nurse navigators can answer questions and determine whether screening is right for you.

 

LDCT screening is provided at convenient locations across Suffolk and Nassau counties:

  • St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center, Smithtown
  • St. Charles Hospital, Port Jefferson
  • Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, West Islip
  • St. Joseph Hospital, Bethpage
  • Mercy Medical Center, Rockville Centre
  • St. Francis Diagnostic, East Hills
  • St. Catherine & St. Charles Center for Health & Wellness, Commack

 

To learn more or schedule an appointment, please call 844-247-5864 or email [email protected] to speak to a dedicated nurse navigator.
