Archive: Governor Jim Doyle participates in free oral cancer screening at UW

In synchrony with the Head and Neck Awareness Week, former Governor Jim Doyle helped bring media attention to head and neck cancer and our UW Health Free Screening Day on May 11. Please click here to watch Governor Doyle’s exam along with Gregory K Hartig, MD in action.

The Head and Neck Team from the Division of Otolaryngology and the Department of Human Oncology made the 5th Annual Oral Screening Event a huge success. 186 people were screened in the three-hour window. An initial count shows the unveiling of 31 abnormal findings. The positive feedback was amazing, and 60 people were ready and waiting to be screened when the doors opened at 10:00 am!
