Skin Cancer: Awareness and Screening (P)
In recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, please join us for a short educational presentation and free skin cancer screening in May. Dr. Mark Abdelmalek and Dr. Shoshana Grossman of Dermatology of Philadelphia will provide a 5 minute basic skincancer screening for each participant. This will include a check of any concerning skin issues you may have, including any change in color, shape, border, or size of your moles. It will not be a full body skin exam and is meant only to notify you if you should pursue further dermatologic care.
