Free Skin Cancer Check and Awareness Inverleigh
ABOUT THE EVENT
Lions V Districts Cancer Foundation Inc are bringing their free skin cancer check and awareness unit to Inverleigh on Friday January 21 and Saturday January 22, from 9am to 3:30pm.
This unit will provide a free skin screening service to local people. It is operated by fully trained, certificated, volunteer dermoscopiss. The unit will also be a valuable resource for local people to access not only the skin check, but valuable and timely information about skin care and self-checking techniques. We know early detection of skin lesions potentially saves lives, so this visit will be a timely support and reminder to local people of the need to take care of their skin. Following the skin check, visitors will be issued with a referral to their GP if there are any suspected spots or lesions.
The Unit is not a medical clinic, so diagnosis or treatment requirements are not discussed, it simply provides the skin check and alerts the visitor to skin lesions that require further checking and attention: a great first step in ensuring urgent needs are addressed. The airconditioned van has three fully equipped screening rooms and an entry foyer, as well as a disabled lift and entry at the rear.
Bookings will be available from December 16 via John Crowe on 0414 674 156 or [email protected]. Exact location of unit in Inverleigh will be advised at time of booking, prior to the 21st and 22nd of January.
