Hello skin ravers. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend.
Have you had a chance to schedule your free skin cancer screening?
Here are some (remaining) dates for free skin cancer screenings for the NY, NJ, CT areas. Remember skin cancer screenings are just as important as an annual check-up so be sure to add it to your calendar.
Please note most of the sessions require calling to make an appointment.
For those outside the NY tri-state area, please use the search function on the American Academy of Dermatology website to search your state and city. https://www.aad.org/public/spot-skin-cancer/programs/screenings/find-a-screening
If you don't see a listing near you, try contacting your local university based medical center's dermatology department and inquire if they offer free skin cancer screenings. Many do offer screenings for skin cancer awareness month.
