SKIN CANCER SCREENING
In collaboration with
MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING DERMATOLOGY OF HAUPPAUGE
STONY BROOK HOSPITAL DERMATOLOGY
JONES BEACH STATE PARKS DEPARTMENT
We particularly thank Dr. Jennifer DeFazio of Memorial Sloan Kettering Dermatology Service, who coordinated the numerous volunteer Doctors from Stony Brook Dermatology Services, for conducting the effective Skin Cancer Event/Screening on the Boardwalk prior to the July 4th holiday. Many participants were referred to their dermatologist for necessary follow up. Doreen & Paul Marley of Williston Park registered all patients facilitating proper referrals and appropriate record keeping for the American Academy of Dermatology.
Privacy of individual patients was made possible through the efforts of Rocco Iannarelli and Marty Sudano owner of MVS HOME IMPROVEMENTS INC. of N. Merrick, N.Y. Rocco is always ready to “make it happen” CCMAC acknowledges his efforts which enabled individuals to be screened for Skin Cancer in a private setting although right in the middle of the Jones Beach Boardwalk. He arranged for his friend Marty to build separate screening areas. Marty generously donated employees’ time and materials. Certainly the gratitude of those diagnosed with Skin Cancer that day is extended to Rocco and Marty. When the community combines their efforts, much can be accomplished.
