Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin will participate in the 2009 Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW)
by hosting free screenings, an information fair, and some brief talks. Screenings will be performed next Tuesday, April 28 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Screening requires an appointment; the exams can be scheduled at (414) 805-3666. Even after the screening schedule is full, everyone is invited to come and learn more about head and neck cancer. More information can be obtained in the media release
Several of us have performed the screenings over the past several years. We rarely find anything worrisome, but it is always great to answer some questions and put someone’s mind at ease.
This year’s event is much more ambitious than usual! We will have speakers including cancer survivor and blogger Jay Walt
. We will also be featured on Fox 6 Wake Up News
on Tuesday morning, April 28!
If we can ease just one person’s mind or catch just one early cancer, it will have been worth the effort. We will post some photos after the event. Special thanks to Kathy Myers, RN, who is coordinating the event and to all of our wonderful volunteers.
