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.
