This initiative promotes free screening clinics for oral, head and neck cancer awareness week. We are looking at doing something similar in New Zealand. If you know of any clinician who would like to be involved, let us know. If you specialist is not offering this for Head and Neck Cancer Day (27 July, 2017) then you might like to invite them to get involved. 

The Head and Neck Cancer Alliance (HNCA) is hosting its Annual Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week®, OHANCAW®, April 2-9, 2017 and looks to another record-setting year.Since the institution of OHANCAW®, millions of Americans and thousands internationally have undergone free screenings and many lives have been saved through early detection and treatment.

It involves an easy and simple process to host a screening event in your local community. HNCA provides the materials and the screening sites organize the staff and volunteers. The Commission on Cancer has indicated that hosting an OHANCAW® screening will help during its accreditation process as an OHANCAW® screening serves as a community event.

The kick-off for Early Registration for our OHANCAW® Screening Sites begins today! To register your screening site and receive free educational materials for your OHANCAW® screening, click here. We will be shipping the OHANCAW® kits in mid-March.

Thank you to all partners and screening sites who have hosted OHANCAW® screening and awareness events. HNCA looks forward to working with all of you in 2017.
