Physicians catch high percentage of skin cancers at Women's Dermatologic Society screening

In a region saturated with sunshine, South Florida physicians won the attention of appreciative golf enthusiasts at the recent ADT Championship LPGA Playoffs in West Palm Beach with free skin cancer screenings and sun safety education presented by the Women's Dermatologic Society (WDS).
Local dermatologists conducted skin examinations for 249 spectators, LPGA Tour caddies and members of the media, with 36% of individuals screened referred for further diagnosis or biopsy of suspicious sites on the skin.
A team of local dermatologists volunteered for a busy weekend of screenings, sun damage assessments, and sun safety education for crowds of the sunbelt's golf lovers.
This effort chalks up the year's fifth and final outreach event for the Women's Dermatologic Society's Play Safe in the Sun, the 3-year community service campaign presented in collaborative partnership with L'Oreal USA.
