Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week

The Head and Neck Cancer Alliance seeks to enable an organized and strategic alliance of stakeholders to dramatically shift the stage of discovery of head and neck cancers through united and collaborative efforts in prevention, early detection and research. In partnership with the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance and Sentara, EVMS provides annual free head and neck cancer screenings, and also participates at off-site screenings and education events. Such events have occurred at locations including Greenbrier Middle School, Chesapeake, Park Place Medical Center, Richmond International Raceway and Harbor Park in Norfolk. The mission of Head and Neck Cancer Week is to providing support to head and neck cancer patients throughout the year, support ongoing research in head and neck oncology and educate children and adults in the disease process, treatment and prevention of head and neck cancer.
