Free Skin Cancer Screening
Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center (SVRCC) in partnership with Dr. Lixia Ellis, a board-certified dermatologist of Dartmouth Hitchcock Putnam Physicians, will offer a free full-body skin screening from 8 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, September 14, at SVMC Dermatology, 140 Hospital Drive, Suite 205, Bennington. An appointment is required; call 802-440-4264 and leave a message with your name and daytime telephone number. Appointments fill quickly based on the order of calls. While open to all, the screening is targeted to people with no insurance or high deductibles, those who have risk factors for skin cancer and have never had a screening. If you are unable to schedule a screening during the free event, you can request a skin cancer screening at their next primary care appointment. Visit svhealthcare.org to find a provider.
