Information on screenings and support services can also be obtained by contacting the New York State Department of Health at 866-442-2262. Earlier this year, New York State launched a new breast cancer textline to help women find access to nearby breast cancer screenings. To use the service, text “get screened” from your cell phone to 81336. After providing your zip code, the service will reply with a message containing nearby screening locations that offer extended hours.
