To help raise awareness for oral, head, neck and thyroid cancer, Lourdes is hosting a free Lunch and Learn on Wednesday, April 18 from Noon – 1 p.m. in the Lourdes Marshall Nemer Pavilion’s Borders Community Room.

Mercy Ear, Nose and Throat’s Dr. Rockne Brubaker will be the guest speaker. April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month.
