    Forrest General Hospital and Mississippi State Department of Health host Head, Neck, and Oral Cancer Education and Screenings

    HATTIESBURG, Miss. – (August 23, 2019) Pine Belt residents have an opportunity to attend a lecture about head, neck, and oral health Thursday, September 12, from noon-1 p.m., and participants who qualify will receive a free screening immediately following the presentation at Forrest General Hospital. You must attend the lecture to qualify for the free screening.

     

    The screening is helpful to call attention to potential problems and to identify early risk factors for dental disease, mouth and throat cancers as well as other health issues. A screening identifies problems that are visible to the naked eye and does not include a detailed exam or diagnoses. The screenings will be performed by licensed dental providers.

     

    This meeting will take place in Forrest General’s Pine room located inside Forrester’s Cafeteria. Participants will receive a free oral care kit. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

     

    Space is limited, so register now for the event by visiting forrestgeneral.com/oralscreenings or by calling 601-288-4445.
