USA SPF 90 Team to Give Free Skin Cancer Screenings

The University of South Alabama’s SPF 90 Team will provide skin cancer screenings at the Azalea Trail Run Health and Fitness Expo this Saturday, March 26, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mobile Civic Center Arena.

The SPF 90 Team, established in 2006 as an outreach and education program, highlights the importance of early detection of skin cancer. The acronym SPF 90 represents Skin Protection Force, with 90 representing the percentage of skin cancer that is curable with early detection.

Members of the SPF 90 Team include Dr. Carlo Contreras, assistant professor of surgery at USA; USA physicians with the department of surgery; and Mona Hagmaier, a physician assistant with a special interest in skin conditions.

Free parking will be available at the Civic Center parking lot. To view a map of the Civic Center, click here.
