Free Screening at Jeanes Hospital During Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week®

Friday, April 7, 2017
8:30am to 11:30am

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.
