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.

SPOTme® with the Latino community
The Latino Outreach Program seeks to bring awareness, education, and skin cancer screenings to underserved Latino populations.

Current screening venues include the Ventanillas de Salud within Mexican Consulates.
