HNCA Urges Rescheduling of Screening Events Due to COVID-19

Thank you for your participation in HNCA’s Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness (OHANCA) Program. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, screenings and other group activities are being placed on hold. We encourage sites to reschedule screening events for later in the year, working with your institution’s public health teams to determine the appropriate timing and venue to optimize the safety of the event. If you have received a screening kit already, please be sure to hold on to it until a future date when it is advisable to hold your head and neck cancer screening. If you have a screening already scheduled that you need to cancel or reschedule, please send an email to, and we can assist you in removing your screening events from our website. 

We also encourage participants to work digitally to raise awareness of oral, head and neck cancer during Awareness Week (April 13-19). If you’d like to request a package of social media posts, videos, email copy, and newsletter articles for your institution’s use, please email

The Head and Neck Cancer Alliance is thinking about all those who are affected by COVID-19, especially the cancer patients and survivors that we all serve.

I had no idea that HPV could cause head and neck cancer. I am an advocate for everyone I know. I don’t want them to experience what I and my family experienced because we did not know about this sexually transmitted virus.Tina O’Dell
