Queens Library holds cancer talk

TimesLedger Newspapers

Queens Library invites everyone in Queens and around the world to learn more about prevention, detection and treatment of common cancers. An expert panel of doctors and social workers from Long Island Jewish Medical Center, New York Hospital Queens, the New York University Langone Medical Center, the American Cancer Society and the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society will present two free programs and answer questions.

The programs will take place on Nov. 7 and Nov. 28 at 1:30 p.m. at the Queens Village Library, at 94-11 217th St. Those who prefer may dial into the program via free teleconference to listen or watch the webcast and ask questions via chat.

Both programs are free. No library card or identification is required, but you must pre-register by calling 718-464-0084 or 718-776-6800.

Queens Library’s award-winning Mail-A-Book program has pioneered using technology so homebound people can attend library programs without having to travel. Queens Library’s award-winning HealthLink has pioneered connecting the community to information about cancer prevention and detection through its local libraries.

They have joined forces to promote a healthier Queens and make important information available to those who can come to the library as well as those who will join remotely.
