IU Health Wellness Outreach Center Offers Free Skin Cancer Screenings

sunsmartIt is finally June! You know what that means, it will officially be summer soon. We all know some extra vitamin D can chase away those winter blues but you must be aware of the potential adverse effects exposure to the sun can have on you.

The IU Health LaPorte Hospital invites community members to have free cancer screenings next week on June 9. Dr. Ted George Achufusi will be conducting screenings from 9 to 11 am in LaPorte. In Knox from 1:15 until 3:15 pm you can receive a screening from Dr. Nabil Abdo.

The doctors will examine your skin and inspect for any possible signs of skin cancer. Then they will provide recommendations on how to follow up on any suspicious areas. Wellness Outreach Specialists will finish up the visit with advice on how to protect your skin this sunny season. Contact 219-325-7648 to schedule your free screening today.
