UPDATED - Free Skin Cancer Screening Available at Jacksonville Memorial Hospital


The screening will be held 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 29, at Jacksonville Memorial Hospital, 1600 W. Walnut St., Jacksonville.

Screenings will be conducted by the dermatology team from the Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU. Preregistration and a short consent form are required to participate in the screening.

To preregister, call 217-479-3928. Participants should not currently be under the care of a dermatologist.

“Prevention, awareness and education are important parts of the care we offer,” said Aziz Khan, MD, executive director of SCI and chief of hematology oncology for SIU Medicine. “Diagnosing a precancerous condition or cancer at an early stage is a positive step.”

Funding for the screening is provided by the Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU.
