Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon
Health & Fitness Expo: May 3-4, Duke Energy Center
Post-Race Party: May 5, Yeatman’s Cove
Joining in the Flying Pig festivities this month? Be sure to check out the UC Health mobile diagnostics van, which will be available for walk-throughs at the post-race party and the two-day health and fitness expo preceding the event at the Duke Energy Center.
Coming soon to a community near you, our mobile diagnostics van will be the first and only in the region to offer one of the latest innovations in breast imaging, digital tomosynthesis. Tomosynthesis’ 3D technology allows radiologists to see “inside” the breast, detecting smaller tumors at earlier stages and offering more accurate results for women with dense breasts.
UC Health is proud to be the official health care provider and Team Wellness sponsor for the 15th Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon. Visit flyingpigmarathon.com for details on all the weekend’s events.
