The University of Virginia Health System Department of Dermatology and UVa Cancer Center are hosting a free skin cancer screening on May 11 from 8 AM to 12 PM.

The free screening will be held at the UVa Medical Center Primary Care Center’s Dermatology Clinic, located on the third floor, in Charlottesville.

Volunteer physicians are expected to screen more than 300 patients. Participants can bring in an old baseball cap or visor in exchange for a new full coverage sun hat while supplies last.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with more than 3 million skin cancer cases expected to be diagnosed this year. But when found early, skin cancer is almost always treatable.
