CCMAC has been providing FREE Skin Cancer Screenings on the Boardwalk at Jones Beach State Park, and other locations around the New York metropolitan area since 2005. Early identification and early intervention saves lives. Many of those screened are referred to private physicians for more comprehensive examinations and follow up.
