Event Description

UNC Adams School of Dentistry's Student National Dental Association is hosting the annual Oral Cancer 5K Run/Walk & Community Health Fair! The event (rain or shine) will kick off at the UNC Chapel Hill Old Well Saturday May 30, 2020 at 8 AM.
In honor of UNC Adam’s School of Dentistry’s very own oral cancer survivor, Dr. Scott Eidson, all proceeds will be donated to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to provide accessible and affordable treatment to head and neck cancer patients throughout North Carolina.
Our community health fair efforts are to create oral cancer awareness, and to educate the public on the importance of prevention and screening to assist in early detection of this disease. We will be offering *FREE( oral cancer screenings on-site, in addition to diverse activities and services offered by various health profession volunteers to provide information about health and wellness as a whole.

About the Cause:
The American Cancer Society estimates over 53,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer in 2020, and approximately 1 in 5 will not survive. Profits generated from SNDA's Oral Cancer 5K Run/Walk will be donated to to fund life-saving research and reduce the incidence of oral and oropharyngeal cancers in the U.S. population. Be a part of the solution today!
