Archive: New record for oral cancer screenings!

As part of Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week, free oral cancer screenings were held Wednesday in the UW ENT Clinic.

170 patients were screened and 30 abnormal findings were recorded.

Of those, 28 patients agreed to follow-up treatment.

A team of 15 physicians and one PA participated as screeners, and 30 staff members and volunteers helped run the event.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
