Free Skin Cancer Screenings During Blue Angels Weekend


Press Release: More than 2 million cases of skin cancer can be diagnosed this year, but you don’t have to be one of them. Preventive care can help ensure healthy skin.

Baptist Cancer Institute is offering a free skin cancer screening event during Blue Angels weekend, July 8 and 9. The Baptist tent will be located by Casino Beach’s Public Safety Building from 8 a.m. to noon both days. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss sun-exposed areas of concern with on-site physicians. The team will be screening for the two major types of skin cancer, melanoma and non-melanoma, both of which are related to sun exposure.

Screenings are limited and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants will be provided with local resources if additional follow-up is needed.

This is the sixth year that Baptist Cancer Institute heads to Pensacola Beach to offer prevention and education during the Blue Angels Weekend. Last year’s team conducted more than 300 screenings. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, but with prevention and education you can save your body’s largest organ from a lifetime of damage.
