Kissing Oral Cancer Goodbye
Course Description: Dr. Manu Dua was a general dentist in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He was diagnosed with oral cancer at the age of 33 and died from it at the age of 34. This should not have happened. Oral cancer is increasing and it is affecting younger people. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is involved with 70% of oral cancer found in the oropharynx. Besides HPV, there are other risk factors for oral cancer. Some risk factors can be mitigated, such as lifestyle changes and getting the HPV vaccine. Oral cancer is our cancer. We can do more to prevent it and diagnose it at earlier stages. This course will teach you about strategies you can implement so there will no more stories with sad endings like Dr. Manu Dua's.
