Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, and the Kewaunee County Public Health Department is partnering with Prevea Health to increase awareness of it.
Free skin-cancer screenings will be held April 4, starting at 9 am, at the Prevea Luxemburg Health Center, 101 School Creek Trail in Luxemburg. They are open to all age groups. Medical professionals will offer spot checks and discuss the signs of skin cancer and how to protect your skin.
“It only takes one blistering sunburn during childhood or adolescence to nearly double a person’s chance of developing melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – later in life,” said Cindy Kinnard, director of the Kewaunee County Public Health Department. “The single best way to protect yourself is to use sunscreen anytime that you’re outdoors.”
