"Where's the Chair?" Seen in Northern Virginia
On Friday, January 29, Dr. Christine Karapetian, Dr. David Treff, Dr. Kirk Norbo and Dr. Melanie Love screened patients for oral cancer at two RECenters in Northern Virginia (McLean and Annandale). The dentists volunteered as part of the VDA's ongoing "Where's the Chair?" campaign, in which the VDA places a portable dental chair in public places to offer impromptu oral cancer screenings.
Since 2014, we have screened hundreds of people at "Where's the Chair?" events in Virginia Beach, Richmond, Charlottesville, Roanoke and Northern Virginia. Each time, we capture great local media coverage in local newspapers and TV news stations. In Northern Virginia, we had a nice story in McLean Connections, a weekly newspaper that covers the McLean community.
Where will "the chair" go next? Stay tuned!
