Free Skin Cancer Screening Set for May 7

The Westport Weston Health District and Fairfield County Dermatologists will host their annual free skin cancer screening on Sunday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the District said today.

It will take place at the Health District, 180 Bayberry Lane, Westport. Screening is free and no appointment is necessary.

The District said skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and it is increasing in incidence. The American Academy of Dermatology says that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.
