Capitol Hill Skin Cancer Screening and Prevention Health Fair

In cooperation with the Congressional Skin Cancer Caucus, the AADA recognizes Melanoma and Skin Cancer Prevention and Detection Month® by hosting a Capitol Hill Skin Cancer Screening and Prevention Health Fair in the Capitol Hill Visitors Center. This annual congressional event is intended to raise awareness about melanoma, encourage early detection of skin cancer, and educate the public about sun safety strategies.

During the Health Fair, AADA dermatologists conducted almost 60 free skin cancer screenings. The screenings, like others conducted across the country throughout the year, will help save lives by detecting melanomas in their earliest and most treatable stage and teaching participants to perform skin self-exams.
