FORT MYERS, FL – Monday March 20, 2017 – Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery was recently honored by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery for participating in the Choose Skin Health program and “devoting tremendous time and energy” by providing free skin cancer screenings in the national skin cancer prevention program. Riverchase performed 877 free skin cancer screenings in Florida during the program year from October 1, 2015 through October 1, 2016, which was the largest number of all program participants.
The Choose Skin Health program is a partnership between ASDS and Neutrogena that encourages the public to choose healthy and sun-safe behavior, and promotes skin cancer prevention through free skin cancer screenings, regular sunscreen use and the practice of skin self-exams monthly, according to the ASDS. In 2016, volunteer screeners provided 3,714 total free skin cancer screenings. Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery providers performed over 24 percent of the total screenings.
Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery is dedicated to giving back to the community and promoting healthy skin behavior. For the last three years, the practice was recognized as the top screener in their region. This is the second year they have earned the designation of top screener in the country and they plan to uphold that title.
