The screenings will have the oversight of Tasso Pappas, M.D., dermatologist. There will be a total of three practitioners involved in the screening as part of a national campaign to encourage early detection and teach prevention of skin cancer.

Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
