Join us for this free skin cancer screening in collaboration with the American Academy of Dermatology, to help stay healthy as summer approaches. All are welcome, especially those who have a changing mole, a previous history of melanoma, are over 50 (especially men), and do not have a regular dermatologist. These individuals may be at particularly high risk for melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
During this screening there will be an opportunity to volunteer for a clinical study being conducted by The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology. NYU staff will be available to explain the study in detail and answer any questions. You do not have to enroll in this study to participate in the screening.
No appointment necessary.
Please arrive no earlier than 1:00PM and no later than 4:30PM to
ensure that you are seen.
Please call 212-263-2627 for more information.
Co-sponsored by: The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology and the NYU Cancer Institute
