Promoting screenings at KY State Fair
In 1990, the James Graham Brown Cancer Center began offering mammograms at KY State Fair to raise awareness and improve access to quality breast care. Dr. Sarah Mizuguchi explained how that mission is just as important today to WHAS’s Terry Meiners (watch video) .
Mammograms are offered daily at the state fair from 9a – 5p in the South Wing.
