The annual information and prevention campaign “If in Doubt – Get Checked Out” will be held on 12-13 November 2017. This initiative has been organized for the sixth consecutive year on the occasion of the Mouth Cancer Action Month – November.
The campaign is organized by the Association of Students of Dental Medicine – Varna, in close cooperation with the Association of Medical Students – Varna (AMS-Varna), the Association of Students of Pharmacy – Varna (ASP-Varna), the Student Council and with the assistance of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at FDM, as well as the Academic Management at the Faculty of Dental Medicine and MU – Varna.
Traditionally, the campaign “If in Doubt – Get Checked Out” consists of an information and prophylactic part. The information part will start with distributing promotional materials on 12th and 13th November 2017.
On 12th November a special stand will be located at Grand Mall – Varna from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The results from the previous campaigns have shown a steady growth of the number of examined citizens. This brings us to the conclusion that oral cancer can be overcome if diagnosed on time.
