Councilmen Kevin Kramer (District 11), Stuart Benson (District 20) and Robin Engel (District 22) in conjuncture with the Metro Health Department, the Partnership for Cancer Control and the Kentucky Cancer Program are hosting a Mobile Mammography Clinic for area women age 40 and over.  The clinic will be conducted at the Glenridge Health Campus (6415 Calm River Way) on Friday, September 12 between 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The James Graham Brown Cancer Center will conduct the screenings with insurance being filed for those persons with coverage.
