Take Part in Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer Awareness Week
The 16th Annual Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer Awareness Week© (OHANCAW©) is scheduled for April 14-20, 2013. Sponsored by the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance, OHANCAW is a weeklong series of events promoting awareness of this life-threatening, but treatable (if caught early) disease, highlighted by a day of free oral cancer screenings at medical offices, centers, and institutions throughout the country. All members can participate by conducting a free screening at their medical practice, clinic, hospital, or university. The Alliance supports screening sites by providing free materials, including posters, T-shirts, and media kits, to help set up and promote the activity.
