The Kentucky Commission on Women and other women's health advocates unveiled a new interactive women's wellness kiosk at Mary Breckinridge ARH Hospital in Hyden. This is the sixth kiosk launched by the commission and its partners in Kentucky. Frontier Nursing University sponsors the kiosk at the hospital, which serves Leslie County and the surrounding region.

The bilingual touch-screen kiosk provides a wide range of information on general women's wellness and breast health, including symptoms and treatment options for diabetes, asthma, cancers, weight management, smoking cessation, STDs, depression, heart health, domestic violence, breast health and HIV/AIDS.
