FREE drop-in melanoma and skin cancer screening clinic for all ages

With those sunny days of summer around the corner, Sonoma West Medical Center, 501 Petaluma Avenue, Sebastopol, is hosting a free drop-in melanoma and skin cancer screening clinic for all ages on Tuesday, May 3, from 8am to 11am at the Center. 

Board certified dermatologists and specialists in skin cancer screening, Dr. Cynthia Bailey and Dr. Jen Hayes, Sebastopol, will be conducting the screenings at the hospital. 

According to Dr. Bailey who has been in practice in Sebastopol for 25 years, "As the sun exposure season starts, we want to bring awareness to this health issue and provide this service as one in five Americans develop skin cancer in their lifetimes."  The physicians will be checking easily accessible exposed skin sites during this free screening clinic. All ages are welcome.
