Book Your Local (and Free!) Skin-Cancer Check Soon

Health and fitness editor Jenna Bergen just booked her first-ever skin-cancer screening — and she wants you to join her

I just got off the phone with Fran, one of the most helpful and sweetest ladies ever, to schedule my first (and admittedly overdue) free skin-cancer check at Jeff on May 19th. May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and so many of Philly’s top hospitals open up their doors for a day and kindly offer to check you over from head to toe—without charging you a dime—to make sure your skin is healthy and good to go for the upcoming summer.

We’ll be posting a round up of places offering this awesome service soon, but it felt so good to call and get this appointment in the books that I had to share my excitement with you. And if you hurry up and call Jeff soon (1-800-JEFF-NOW, and no, you do not get tossed into an automated service, and yes, Fran knew exactly what I was talking about the second I asked about the clinic so calling was entirely pleasant), you’ll have your choice of appointments. And hurry, because they fill up fast!
