Oral Cancer Screening
The College will host an oral cancer screening for adults on Tuesday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dental Hygiene Clinic in L’Hommedieu Hall on the Edison campus. The event is free and open to the public; preregistration is not necessary. The noon to 1 p.m. hour is reserved for College faculty, staff and students; any adult is welcome from 9 a.m. to noon.
“April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and it is a good time to focus on this issue,” said Lynn Tobin, adjunct faculty member in the College’s Dental Hygiene program. “It is a disease that is often curable if you catch it early, but can be fatal if not diagnosed in time. Oral cancer kills more than 8,000 people a year.”
The College is the only place in Middlesex County that is performing the free screenings.
