SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Upstate University Hospital’s traveling mammography van will be moving around Central New York in September to provide breast cancer screenings.
The van’s first stop in September is at the New York State Fair. On September 1 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and September 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the van will offer tests between gates 2 and 3.
If you’d like to schedule a mammogram at the Fair — or any of the following locations — you should call (315) 464-2588 or visit the van’s website. Upstate also says that women should be over 40, have not had a mammogram in the last year, and not experiencing breast problems. The American College of Radiology recommends that women over 40 get screened for breast cancer at least once a year.
Following the Fair, the van will continue its journey across CNY. Here’s a list of locations Upstate plans on stopping at:
The van has screened over 2,000 women since its start in 2019.
