Women enjoying the Arkansas State Fair can take care of an important health screening at the same time. This will be possible thanks to the UAMS MammoVan.

The MammoVan mobile is a mammography unit operated by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). It will be at the Arkansas State Fair, 2600 Howard St., in Little Rock from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on October 18th to offer mammograms.

The three-room mobile unit is outfitted with the most advanced digital mammography equipment and is staffed by a certified mammography technologist and a technical assistant. The unit is handicap accessible, with a wheelchair lift entering directly into the mammography suite and can accommodate women in a standing or seated position.

To make an appointment, call (800) 259-8794. Walk-ins are welcome but may experience a short wait.
