Free Skin Cancer Screening

Posted: June 17, 2014

The Sussex County Department of Environmental and Public Health Services, through its Sussex-Warren Chronic Disease Coalition, will be participating in a statewide initiative called “Choose Your Cover.”

This free skin cancer screening program will be held Saturday, June 21, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Newton pool, 35 Moran Street in Newton.

The North Jersey Dermatology Center of Rockaway and Lillian Struck, APRN from Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons, P.A. have donated their time and expertise to provide this free screening.

The screening area will be near the main pool entrance, under a tent to protect everyone from the sun. In addition to screenings, there will be a mini-health fair.

Learn how to reduce your risks against skin cancer through practicing sun safety behaviors, among other interesting health topics. Free educational materials will also be provided to all participants.
