KentuckyOne Health, Metro Council launch mobile cancer screening

Representatives from KentuckyOne Health, the University of Louisville Hospital, the James Graham Brown Center and the Louisville Metro Council launched a new mobile cancer-screening unit on March 10.

The program — called Horses for Hope Cancer Screening Unit — provides free or significantly reduced-cost cancer screenings to under-served populations in the Louisville area, according to a news release from KentuckyOne.

The unit will focus on educating people in the Louisville region about cancer prevention and “eventually offer screenings for seven types of cancer: breast, cervical, colon, lung, prostate, skin, as well as head and neck,” the news release said.

The Horses for Hope mobile cancer-screening program is scheduled to serve the Highview, Okolona, Newburg, Lyles Mall and Churchill Downs areas in the coming months.
