Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015: Mercy Health to offer oral-cancer screenings at Davis Family YMCA

Mercy Health Youngstown, formerly Humility of Mary Health Partners, will provide oral-cancer screenings from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 6 in the Mercy Health Dental mobile van, which will be at the Davis Family YMCA, 45 McClurg Road, Boardman.

Those at greatest risk of developing oral cancer are tobacco users – cigarette, cigar or pipe smokers and those who chew smokeless tobacco – individuals who drink alcohol to excess, have a family history of oral cancer, have experienced excessive sun exposure and individuals with human papillomavirus (HPV).

Screenings are free, but registration is required. Call 330-480-3183.

Support for this program is provided by Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley.
