Many members of the IL AGD participated in the Oral Cancer Foundation Awareness Walk/Run on May 22nd at Redmond Park in Bensenville. The Oral Cancer Foundation is a national public service, non-profit entity designed to reduce suffering and save lives through prevention, education, research, advocacy, and patient support activities. Oral cancer is the sixth most common form of cancer worldwide. More than 45,000 Americans and 4,000 Canadians were expected to be diagnosed in 2015 alone, resulting in an expected 9,000-plus deaths, or about one every hour. The AGD Foundation is strongly committed to promoting oral cancer awareness, risk factor prevention, and diagnostic training for general dentists that utilizes the best technology. The AGD Foundation is an intellectual partner with the Global Oral Cancer Forum-an International assembly of passionate professionals focused on building awareness of oral cancer.
