Lifespan Community Health Institute is offering free skin cancer screenings at RI beaches this summer.
All screenings are provided by dermatologists and dermatology residents affiliated with University Dermatology. Screenings are free of charge—first come, first served. The first 100 people at each event will be screened. Those who require follow-up will be referred for dermatology consults. Wear your bathing suit or clothing that will be easy to remove.
