A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” - Angie

February 7th, 2020 Town of Islip employees joined Go Red for Women Friday, wearing red to raise awareness and uncover the truth about heart disease in women.

Go Red for Women gives women a fighting chance against heart disease, by helping them understand their common killer. More women than men have died from cardiovascular disease since 1984. More women die from heart disease than from the next three causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer.

Sixty four percent of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms, and many of those women had at least one risk factor that could have been prevented.

"Women are often caregivers to others, but neglect their own health," said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter. "I urge all women to visit and learn the important facts about cardiovascular disease in women," she said.
