CCMAC has been providing FREE Skin Cancer Screenings on the Boardwalk at Jones Beach State Park, County and Town Parks, and other locations around the New York metropolitan area since 2005. Without the dedication and generosity of dermatologist, residents, and other staff from Memorial Sloan Kettering, Stony Brook University, Mount Sinai, North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System, Belaray Dermatology, All Island Dermatology, and McClain Laboratories these life saving screenings would not be able to provided to the Long Island Community. Early identification and early intervention saves lives. Many of those screened are referred to private physicians for more comprehensive examinations and follow up.
New York State Life Guards Screening
May 11th, 2013
CCMAC has been providing FREE Skin Cancer Screenings around the New York metropolitan area for the past six years. Early identification and intervention saves lives. Many of those screened are referred to private physicians for follow up. This past May CCMAC sponsored a skin cancer screening for New York State Lifeguards who were re-certifying as lifeguards at the Brentwood Campus of Suffolk Community College. Life guards at our county and state parks are at increased risk due to the nature of their jobs, and the amount of time spent in the sun.
CCMAC, and the lifeguards screened GREATLY APPRECIATE the doctors and volunteers who donate their time to provide the screenings. Special thanks to Steve McClain, of McClain Laboratories and Dr. Pamela Basuk, of Basuk Dermatology pictured below, and volunteers Barbara and Donald Gleason..
