Adding your event to the calendar
It is possible for you to add your own event to the OCF web site events calendar. Once on the current events page, you will see a link titled add your event, it is also at the bottom of every event posted in a green button. Please fill out the form completely, and it will be sent to OCF for approval. Once approved by the foundation, your event will reside here on our web site. The interface allows you to easily spread the word of your event through various social media sites like Facebook, and email the completed event page with maps, and other features directly to others through a simple mouse click or through an email. If you are a private practitioner seeing patients for a screening afternoon in your office, the interface allows you to set a limit on the number of people that can register for the screening, and it will connect the patient and the office directly through an RSVP interface.
We hope that this ability to expose the visitors to our site to as many oral cancer related events as possible yields greater awareness, exposes educational events to more medical and dental professionals, and allows the public to locate more screening events that ultimately will find the disease at the earliest possible time.
Please note, OCF reserves the right to edit the content of any event submitted for any reason, or elect to not add the event to our calendar. Events will usually be posted within 2 business days of their receipt.
Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Screening Month Events
A national cooperative effort is being undertaken by multiple foundations, charities, teaching institutions, treatment facilities, and private dental and medical offices to raise oral, head and neck cancer awareness. We urge you to partner with the foundation to sponsor a screening day, work with us on an awareness raising walk / run event, or conduct educational seminars for professionals or the public in your area. Please fee free to contact the foundation with questions or ideas on how to do these things successfully. (949) 723-4400 (Pacific Time)
