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 held 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. For more details, and to register to organize a free screening in your area, visit www.OHANCAW.com.
We, the Oncology Nursing Society is teaming up with the HNCA in 2013 to educate the public about early detection of oral, head and neck cancers during OHANCAW!
