Participants with possible skin cancer or precancerous conditions will be referred either to their family physician or to a dermatologist for further testing. 

Appointments are required for these screenings. No walk-ins will be accepted. Spots fill up quickly, so schedule your appointment now by contacting CareFinders at 1-866-608-FIND (3463).
