spotme-find-a-screening-carouselPrevention is the first step to avoiding skin cancer, but it is also important to be screened regularly. Skin cancer screenings should be done by a medical professional at least once a month. When getting a screening, make sure the physician checks your entire body from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. There are several places to get screened in the Atlanta area and many of them offer screenings free of charge.

As a part of the American Academy of Dermatology’s continued campaign against skin cancer, you can sign up for e-mail alerts to know when a screening has been scheduled in your area. All you have to do is click here, select Georgia, and add yourself to the subscription list. Or, just view the list on the website to see the screenings available.
