Don’t Let The Bedbugs Bite!

January 20, 2011

A bedbug is an insect about 4–5 mm in length and 1.5–3 mm wide. They are nocturnal parasites, meaning that they sleep during the day and feast on the blood of humans at night.

Bedbugs can lurk anywhere in your home, but typically favor areas where they don’t have to walk very far at night to eat. So they typically nest in bedding or in mattresses. They also love nesting in your carpet, bed frames, couches, or even in the cracks or crevices of wall. They’ve even been known to nest behind wallpaper.

Feeling itchy yet?

Well, as you know, NYC has seen a huge rise of bedbug infestations — they can cause health issues and it’s important that you have the facts. So Senator Joe Addabbo and Assemblyman Mike Miller are sponsoring a bedbug seminar on Thursday, February 17th at 7 PM at Emanuel United Church of Christ located at 93-12 91st Avenue, in Woodhaven.

On Sunday, January 30, between 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr., is sponsoring a free Mobile Mammography Van at the Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Ambulance Corps, 78-15 Jamaica Avenue, Woodhaven. An appointment is necessary. Call 1-800-453-8378, Ext. 1. Women ages 40 and over are urged to have a free screening for  cancer as an early Valentine’s Day gift to themselves. This is the seventh free mammography event the Senator has coordinated with the American Italian Cancer Foundation for women in his district since October 2008.

“We know that early detection of breast cancer can save lives. Once again, I worked with the American-Italian Cancer Foundation to bring their Mammogram Van to my district, offering free, vital health care services for women ages 40 and older, who have had no mammograms in the last 12 months, who either have no insurance, or are insured by one of the insurance companies that are listed on the attached document and will be billed for services. For women without health insurance, services will be paid for by the Screening Partnerships of the New York State Cancer Services Program (NYS CSP) or through generous contributions by the American-Italian Cancer Foundation’s donors.  “However, even insured women will not be charged a copayment and will not receive a bill,” said Senator Addabbo.

On the day of the Mammogram Van visit, women with Medicare, Medicaid, or other health insurance must bring their membership card. For more details about the NYS CSP, call 866-442-CANCER (2262).

On the day of your visit:

  • Wear a two-piece outfit
  • Please do not use any oil, powder, deodorant, or perfume in the breast, underarm or chest area.

In addition to a mammogram performed by a certified, licensed mammography technologist, professional medical services from Multi-Diagnostic Services, Inc. (MDS) will include:

  • Clinical breast exam and instruction in breast self-exam by a trained professional
  • Radiological interpretations performed by Board Certified Radiologists
  • Results will be sent to each woman and/or her doctor within 10 business days (please provide MDS with full name, address to send results to the doctor)
  • If you provide MDS with previous mammogram films, a comparison radiological study will be done, which in some cases eliminates the need for additional testing.

For more information about MDS, please call 800-453-TEST (8378).

Senator Addabbo adds, “I want to thank all the generous donors who have funded the American-Italian Cancer Foundation’s Mobile Mammography Program:  Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund, National Breast Cancer Foundation, New York City Council, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, The Greater NYC Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, and the New York State Department of Health.”
