UVA Free Skin Cancer Screening Saturday May 11, 2019 8am-noon

Free Skin Cancer Screening

*   One in five people in the U.S. will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.

*   On average, one person dies of melanoma in the U.S. every hour.

*   Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S., but is almost always treatable if found early.

*   Get a free skin cancer screening by a UVA dermatologist, and learn how to protect yourself and your family from skin cancer.

Screenings are recommended for people:

*   Frequently exposed to the sun and UV light
*   Who have a family history of skin cancer
*   With a mole that has changed in shape, color or size, or a sore that won’t heal

Call 800.223.9173 to register.  This event is free, but you must schedule an appointment in advance.

Bring a baseball cap or visor to exchange for a new sun hat, while supplies last.
