Skin Check, Scarborough State Beach


This Skin Check, an event formerly known as Sun Smarts, will take place at Scarborough beach in Narragansett, Rhode Island.

Beachgoers will get free, private screenings by expert dermatologists. The events are presented jointly by Lifespan Community Health Institute, Rhode Island Departments of Health and Environmental Management, the Partnership to Reduce Cancer in Rhode Island, Brown Dermatology Inc., American Cancer Society, and NBC 10.

Identifying cases of skin cancer at their earliest, most treatable stage and educating the public about effective sun protection are the twin goals of Skin Check.
