Penn College’s dental hygiene program joined forces with the North Central Pennsylvania Area Health Education Center to co-sponsor a dental continuing education program. Held Sept. 20 in Penn’s Inn, the program featured presentations on HPV by Dr. Lynn Williams, who discussed “HPV and Prevention,” and Registered Dental Hygienist Debbie Zafiropoulos, who covered “How to Screen for Oral Cancers.” The well-attended event attracted about 140 dental professionals.

Jeanne Kerschner,

Thank you for providing this education. My family recently lost a member due to oral cancer. Oral cancer was not something we had paid attention to before.

We’ll never share your email with anyone else.
