Mobile Mammography Van Comes to Kentucky State Fair - Archived



Mobile Mammography Van Comes to Kentucky State Fair James Graham Brown Cancer Center’s Mobile Mammography Van will be on site offering state-of-the-art mammograms

James Graham Brown Cancer Center, part of KentuckyOne Health, will have their mobile mammography van on-site at the Kentucky State Fair on Monday, August 18, 2014.

The mobile mammography van has been providing screening mammograms and saving lives of women across the Commonwealth for more than 20 years. All mammograms performed on the mobile van are screening mammograms – the most common way to detect early stage breast cancer. When breast cancer is caught early, treatment is less invasive and survival rates are improved.
