Oral Cancer 3K/5K Walk/Run

The Student National Dental Association (SNDA) Chapter at Marquette University School of Dentistry is proud to announce that we are hosting the first annual Oral Cancer 3K/5K walk/run on September 21, 2013, on the Marquette University campus. 

Approximately 46,000 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with oral cancer in 2013, which includes tongue and throat cancer. When found early, there is an 80–90% survival rate; however, due to a lack of public awareness, the majority of cases are unfortunately discovered in a late-stage, which often proves to be fatal. In a continuing effort to increase awareness of oral cancer and the importance of early detection, we will be offering free oral cancer screenings performed by community dentists the day of the event to all race participants.

There is a one hour CE course on oral cancer diagnosis and treatment to further educate health care professionals on the importance of early detection. The CE course will be offered Saturday, Sept 21st, from 8am to 9am in Marquette University School of Dentistry. All participants are welcome to attend the CE course, which is free with registration for the event.  Oral Cancer Screenings begin at 9am to 10am. The Walk/Run begins at 10:15am at the Olin underpass.  Registration and additional information can be found online at: http://www.sndamarquette.org/snda-2013ocw/ or you may call 414-288-1533/1445.
