Join the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance in Celebrating the 2017 Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week®, April 2-9
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. If you haven’t already, please be sure to register your screening site today!
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.

HNCA will be shipping the OHANCAW® kits in mid-March, 2017. Thank you to all our partners and screening sites who have hosted OHANCAW® screening and awareness events. HNCA looks forward to working with all of you in 2017.
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.
For individuals looking for free screenings during OHANCAW® and at any other time during the year, please be sure to go to locate a screening site in your area, by either searching http://www.headandneck.org/calendar or http://www.headandneck.org/get-involved/ohancaw/national-map.
