Free screenings boost oral cancer awareness

Dr. Shelley Taylor of the Division of Oral Oncology performs an oral cancer exam last year.

She and her colleagues will repeat the effort today and tomorrow when the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Pathology and the Division of Oral Oncology help raise awareness by offering free oral screenings from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, April 22, in the Department of Oral Surgery on the second floor of the School of Dentistry and from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, in the Oral Oncology Clinic at the UMMC Cancer Institute at the Jackson Medical Mall Thad Cochran Center.

The free screenings highlight the importance of diagnosing oral, head and neck cancers early. The screenings also offer free referral to the ACT Center Tobacco Cessation Program, which provides counseling and FDA-approved medications to help Mississippians quit tobacco.

To make a screening appointment, call 5-1181.
