Vassar Brothers To Provide Free Skin Cancer Screening
Poughkeepsie, NY – March 28, 2012 – Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. And while recent studies suggest that overall cancer rates are decreasing, skin cancer rates are actually increasing.
That is why Vassar Brothers Medical Center and Hudson Dermatology are teaming up to offer a free skin cancer screening on April 14th, 2012. The screening will take place from 9 am to 1 pm in the Vassar Brothers Dyson Center for Cancer Care’s Radiation Oncology Suite. Free valet parking is available in front of the Dyson Center.
Registration is required. Please call 845-483-6314 to register.
