Zwanger Pesiri knows that living without Medical Insurance on Long Island is rather common for many. To help those who are struggling to find health insurance that is affordable, but are still living without it, Zwanger Pesiri Radiology started an amazing program back in April of 2009 called Give Back Sundays. They have decided to continue this program through 2010 at their eight offices on Long Island.
All those helping with Give Back Sundays are volunteer radiologists, technologists, receptionists and many more! Zwanger Pesiri is hoping to inspire those they help to donate time and volunteer for a cause they believe in.
The following Sundays included in this program:
- March 21 in Merrick
- April 25 in East Setauket
- June 13 in Plainview
- September 19 in West Islip
- October 17 in Massapequa
- November 14 in Smithtown
- December 12 in Lindenhurst
