The 2017 TRIP Initiative at Temple University will take place July through August 2017, with specific dates TBD.

Fatigue, or feeling tired, is a common side effect of cancer treatments. For many people, fatigue lessens and goes away when treatments are over. For others, it lasts longer and may affect daily activities.
Ten Minutes That Could Save Your Life. Wednesday, April 5, Temple Head & Neck Institute and Fox Chase Cancer Center Collaborate to Offer Free Screenings During Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week® 2017. 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
This is a Closed Group for newly diagnosed and active treatment patients, which meets the first Wednesday of April, June, August, October, and December. To register, or for more information call Denise Young, MS, LSW, at 215-728-2670.
This year Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Week is April 2-9, 2017.
To celebrate, the Temple Head & Neck Institute will be providing free head and neck screening examinations on the Temple University Hospital, Fox Chase Cancer Center, and Jeanes Hospital campuses. Our goal is to not only identify those with signs and symptoms that are worrisome for head and neck cancer, but to also provide key information and education which will hopefully empower patients and spread the word of how to watch and look for early changes in the mouth, head, or neck which might not be normal.
