Free SPF Samples (while supplies last). Walk in screenings will be very limited, must call ahead to reserve a slot for a guaranteed screening. “Unlike other cancers, skin cancer can be seen on the surface of your skin, making it critical to regularly check your skin for changing or suspicious spots,” said Dr. Morris. “A skin cancer screening from a dermatologist is a visual exam that is painless, only takes a few minutes, and could save your life.” The SPOTme® skin cancer screening program is part of the American Academy of Dermatology’s SPOT Skin CancerTM initiative, a campaign to create a world without skin cancer through public awareness, community outreach programs and services, and advocacy that promote the prevention, detection and care of skin cancer. Since 1985, AAD member dermatologists have conducted more than 2.4 million free skin cancer screenings and have detected nearly 248,000 suspicious lesions, including more than 27,500 suspected melanomas. Call (540) 371-7118 to reserve your free skin cancer screening.
