Summer is here and the sun is shining! As it gets warmer, New Englanders are spending their time outside enjoying the beautiful weather, increasing the opportunity for their skin to be exposed to more ultra-violet rays. This is an important time for people to protect their skin from the sun in order to avoid skin damage. 

 As a service to the community, free full body exams to detect sun-related skin damage will be available for all beachgoers on Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Blum Van during the screening days at Carson Beach on July 13th and August 7th. Dermatologists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital will perform the exams. Adults will also have the opportunity to have their photos taken using a UV camera to assess skin damage and sun safety educational materials and activities will be available for children. Participants will receive educational materials, key chains with energy beads that change color in the sunlight and Red Sox baseball hats (quantities are limited).

Screenings will be cancelled if there is rain. Call 617-632-2614 for more information.
