414 showed up at free skin cancer screening

The 24th annual skin cancer screening that took place May 5 at GraceMed Health Clinic attracted 414 people, 148 of whom were found to have potential skin cancers and nine of whom had possible melanoma.

The event, which takes place in early May, was sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Via Christi Health and others. It was staffed by local dermatologists who donated their time. Screenings were free and open to anyone.

Next year’s screening is scheduled for May 4.
