Choose Your Cover - Free Skin Cancer Screening
Join us for a day at the pool with the Sussex-Warren Chronic Disease Coalition where you can "Choose Your Cover!" This FREE Skin Cancer Screening program is a statewide initiative that will be held in counties all across New Jersey during the 2015 spring and summer seasons.
The Sussex Warren Chronic Disease Coalition, a grant funded program held by the Sussex County Department of Environmental and Public Health Services, has arranged for the County's screening location to be held Saturday, June 27, 2015 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Memory Park near the Newton Pool, 35 Moran Street in Newton. Erika Peereboom, PA, from the North Jersey Dermatology Center of Rockaway and Lillian Struck, APRN, from the Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons, P.A. will be donating their time and expertise to provide this free screening.
Our screening area will be held near the main pool entrance, under a tent to protect everyone from the sun. In addition to screenings, we will be hosting a mini-health fair. Join us for the day and learn how reduce your risks against skin cancer through practicing sun safety behaviors, among other interesting health topics. Free educational materials will also be provided to all participants.
