Head and Neck Cancer Alliance (HNCA) is hosting its Annual Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week®, OHANCAW®, April 7-14, 2019 and looks to another record-setting year. If you have not already done so, please be sure to register your screening site today!
Since the institution of OHANCAW®, hundreds of thousands of people worldwide 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.
