UVA Dermatology Clinic Holds Free Skin Cancer Screening

Posted: Updated:

Many people will want to take advantage of the warmer weather and clear, sunny skies, but more fun in the sun could expose you to health risks.

To help keep you safe, the UVA Dermatology Clinic is holding a free skin cancer screening Saturday  for folks who want to get checked out.  

The appointments are specifically for people at high risk. That includes those with fair complexion, light-colored eyes, tanning bed exposure, or a family history of skin cancer.

There are only 300 slots.  If you are interested in a screening, call 1-800-223-9173 to schedule an appointment.  Availability runs from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

UVA Health System cites skin cancer as the most common cancer in the country.  For more information on skin cancer, click here.
