Members of the New York State Dental Association screened over 150 baseball fans for oral cancer at Citi Field in New York City on Aug. 6.
In addition, an association-created public service announcement was shown on the stadium’s large screen prior to the Mets game’s start pointing attendees to resources regarding oral cancer and encouraging everyone to schedule an oral screening with their dentist. About 30,000 fans were in the crowd.
An audio version of the public service announcement aired on Mets radio over two weeks — seven games — reaching about 1,755,500 listeners.
The announcement can be viewed on YouTube.
