Oral Cancer Foundation Donates Screening Devices to West Virginia Free Clinics
Date:2/23/2010

l.  "It is difficult to think of an area that better fits those criteria than West Virginia." The state ranks highest in the country in tobacco usage, and next-to-last in per capita income.  In identifying free clinics to be potential recipients of the device which identifies loss of tissue auto-fluorescence, an indicator of abnormal tissues, the Oral Cancer Foundation is careful to ensure that each candidate clinic has at least one dentist on staff who can be trained to use the device and can train other staff members.

Oral cancer belongs to the head and neck cancer group, and is often referred to by other names such as; tongue cancer, mouth cancer, tonsil cancer, lip cancer, and throat cancer. While some people think this is a rare cancer, it is not. Approximately 100 people in the U.S. will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer each day, and it takes a life in the U.S. every hour of every day.

WV Health Right was founded in 1982 by a small group of physicians and nurses who recognized the need for a source of ongoing health care for Charleston's low-income uninsured.  The clinic has grown so much since its' founding that it is now in its third location.  In 2001, it added a three-unit dental operatory, making it West Virginia's first free dental clinic.  It now serves almost 20,000 patients per year thanks to over 180 medical and dental professional volunteers.
