Improving Head and Neck Cancer Treatment

Did you know that head and neck cancer is the seventh most common cancer in the world? Sixty percent of Florida counties are above the national rate.

UF/IFAS Extension is pleased to partner with UF Health in a research project on making it easier for individuals with head and neck cancer to participate in clinical trials. Research shows that patient participation in clinical trials improves survival rates, yet only 8% of cancer patients choose to participate in trials.

The research team is recruiting head and neck cancer patients and survivors to participate in a 30-minute phone interview to learn how you think clinical trials can be made more acceptable and reasonable to participate in.

For more information or to participate in the study, contact Marta Hansen at: 1-877-272-7409 or

UF/IFAS is committed to diversity of people, thought and opinion, to inclusiveness and to equal opportunity.
