Free Skin Cancer Screenings

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In the past decade, the number of new melanoma cases diagnosed annually in the U.S. has increased by 53 percent and more than 91,000 cases of melanoma were diagnosed in 2018. Melanoma accounts for less than one percent of skin cancer cases, but the vast majority of skin cancer deaths: More than 9,000 people will die of melanoma in the U.S. in 2019.

In observance of May as National Skin Cancer Awareness Month and in partnership with local health departments and dermatology practices, UM Shore Regional Health will offer free skin cancer screenings as follows:
