Get your skin checked for free at USF

If you have a few minutes to spare, you might learn something very important about yourself this evening at USF.

It’s Melanoma Monday.

That means doctors at the USF Health Morsani Center will check your skin for early signs of cancer. For free.

I’m too young to get cancer, you might say. I wear sun screen. I’ll do anything to look like Snookie.

Dermatologists hear that again and again from the young people (maybe not the Snookie part) who wind up in their offices with dangerous lesions.

But early diagnosis and treatment is almost always a life saver.

The screenings run from 5-7 p.m.

They’re open to the public. First come, first served.

For more information, call (813) 974-4744
