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.

SPOTme® with the Latino community

The Latino Outreach Program seeks to bring awareness, education, and skin cancer screenings to underserved Latino populations. The goal is to educate about the risks of prolonged and unprotected exposure to the sun and provide tips on how to prevent and detect skin cancer. Current screening venues include the Ventanillas de Salud within Mexican Consulates.

Use the Academy's Find a free SPOTme® Skin Cancer Screening tool to find a screening in your area. Spanish-speaking events are indicated in the comments for available screenings.
