Revolv Joins the Fight Against Oral Cancer
April is Oral Cancer Awareness month and Revolv joins the Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF) to raise awareness surrounding oral cancer and importance of oral health screenings. Oral cancer is a non-inherited disease and is considered one of eight preventable cancers.* According to the National Cancer Institute, it is estimated that there will be more than 40,000 new cases of oral cancer in 2014.**
Revolv joins the OCF to raise awareness surrounding oral cancer.
Lifestyle and dietary choices have a significant impact on overall risk of developing oral cancer. Early detection through regular dental screenings is the first line of defense against this disease. At Revolv, we work hand-in-hand with the community to support good oral health habits. Our unique programs and Real-Time predeterminations help to improve the quality of service our clients and their members receive.
