Free skin cancer screenings coming to the Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of Americans can receive free full-body skin cancer screenings this spring and summer.

It's the Skin Cancer Foundation's annual Road to Healthy Skin Tour presented by AVEENO® and Rite Aid.

Starting this week, the Tour's 38-foot customized RV is stopping at more than 50 Rite Aid stores as it zig-zags across the country.

It's due in Kennewick on July 21st. 

 The Tour draws on the expertise of local dermatologists who volunteer  to perform free, full-body skin cancer screenings, which The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends receiving annually.

 The four past Tours have caught nearly 5,300 potential skin cancers and precancers including more than 200 suspected cases of potentially deadly melanoma.
