LadyFest Connects Women with Mobile Mammography and More

Written by Krystie Salyers, Reference Librarian, and Emma Willig, Community TechCenter Coordinator, Downtown Main Library  

Since 2019, we’ve helped ring in Women’s History Month by connecting the community to important community resources with our annual LadyFest women’s health fair.  This year, we reimagined LadyFest and transformed it from an in-person event to a mostly virtual one. 

Our biggest goal this year is to get the word out on community partners that encompass the myriad of health needs for all, while making sure to be equitable to our women and assigned female at birth communities. 

Alongside our free Covid-19 testing through Hamilton County Health Collaborative’s Test and Protect initiative, our in-person events include free mammograms.
