As part of Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month®, local Dayton-area dermatologists are offering free skin cancer screenings to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skin cancers during the week of May 8-12 and on May 17.

 

Morning and afternoon appointments will be available at locations throughout the region. Because space is limited, appointments are REQUIRED. 

“During Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, we are encouraging people to check their skin and note all spots on their bodies, including moles, freckles and age spots,” said Julian Trevino, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Dermatology in the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine. “One in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. When caught early, skin cancer is treatable and beatable."

To schedule an appointment at Atrium Medical Center, Coffman Family YMCA, Miami Valley Hospital South, Samaritan Sleep Center, Upper Valley Medical Center Dugan Infusion Center or Wright State Physicians Health Center, call CareFinders at 1-866-608-3463.

 

The free screenings are sponsored by the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Department of Dermatology, Wright State Physicians Dermatology and Premier Health along with the American Academy of Dermatology and Eucerin.
