A skin cancer screening only takes a few minutes, yet it could save your life. Westlake, Ohio dermatologist Richard Assaf M.D. is offering free skin cancer screenings on July 13 and 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Auditorium B of St. John Medical Center, Westlake, Ohio on 29000 Center Ridge Rd. as part of the Festival of the Arts. These screenings are open to the public on a first come, first seen basis - sign up sheet at the event.

Richard Assaf M.D. has been offering highly popular skin cancer screenings at this summer event for several years. The festival features live musical entertainment, a variety of food stations, hands-on children’s activities and 200+ craftspeople on the beautiful park-like grounds of St. John Medical Center. It’s pleasant to coordinate a summer festival with education about skin health.

“Skin cancer is unique in that it is the only cancer you can see on the surface of the skin. A skin cancer screening is a visual, non-invasive exam that only takes a few minutes, yet it could save a person’s life,” said Dr. Assaf. “One person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. Yet melanoma is often successfully treated, if caught early.” This program offers the opportunity to educate the public about skin cancer prevention and early detection while saving lives by finding skin cancers in their earliest, most treatable stages.
