A New York City organization that seeks to find people who might have been exposed to radiation during the Chernobyl nuclear disaster more than two decades ago will offer free thyroid cancer screenings Thursday in Rockland.
Project Chernobyl, a not-for-profit organization, will be at the JCC-Rockland, 450 West Nyack Road, West Nyack from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to offer free ultrasound screenings.
Screenings are by appointment only. Please contact the office of Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee at 845-624-4601 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. If emailing put ‘thyroid test’ in subject line. Each screening takes about 10 minutes.
