SPOTme® in the community

In 2014, the Academy expanded its screening program thanks to a generous donation from Bristol-Myers Squibb. Through this generous gift, the Academy integrated its national skin cancer screening program with SPOTme®.

Through SPOTme®, our mission is to reduce the number of deaths from skin cancer in the United States by educating the public about skin cancer risk and providing free SPOTme® skin cancer screenings to catch skin cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages.

Below are the Academy’s community programs that are helping SPOTme® reach its goal.
