These appointments are strictly for skin cancer screening and the exams will be very quick. If treatment is required, an additional appointment will need to be scheduled for another day.

Gowns will not be provided, therefore, wearing loose clothing, shorts, or a bathing suit is recommended.

"Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and everyone is at risk, even those with darker skin colors," Lundstrom said in a news release. "While skin cancer is highly treatable when caught early, it can be deadly. That's why free screenings like this one are so important.
