Carole Fakhry, an assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, will deliver a keynote address as part of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine’s Oral Health Week.
Her visit, the fifth annual Delta Dental of Virginia Oral Health Lecture, is made possible through a gift by Delta Dental of Virginia.
Fakhry’s topic is important to health, as human papillomavirus is one of the most significant infectious causes of cancer. Several decades ago, the virus was recognized as a cause of cervical cancer. Since then, the virus has been detected in other parts of the body, including the larynx and the tonsils.
