When & Where
Benefiting the James Graham Brown Cancer Center
The people of Kentucky deserve world-class cancer treatment.
No one should feel compelled to leave Kentucky to seek advanced treatment for cancer. That is why the University of Louisville, the community and state made a considerable investment 30 years ago in the development of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center. The mission of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center is to generate new knowledge relating to the nature of cancer, and to create new and more effective approaches to prevention, diagnosis and therapy, while delivering medical advances with compassion and respect to cancer patients throughout our region.
Guided by a strategic plan emphasizing strong translational research, the best quality treatment for our patients and by creating detection and prevention programs, we have experienced rapid growth and are attracting some of the best minds available to help us win this war.
We are dedicated to finding the answers to cancer. We have many successes to prove it. We are on the verge of many more.
The James Graham Brown Cancer Center is emerging as one of America's finest cancer treatment and research institutions. This is critical to the future health and prosperity of all Kentuckians.
