Sam's Club to offer skin health screenings

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam's Club is offering skin health screenings to customers on May 14 as part of Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

 Sam's Club shoppers will offer skin assessments, which will be conducted by U.S. Wellness, to both members and non-members. U.S. Wellness will conduct DermaScan skin tests, which use Type A ultraviolet light to show sun damage that is invisible to the naked human eye. The retailer added that it will offer free DermaScan skin tests to the first 100 participants who sign up in each club.

 "May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and according to the American Cancer Society, 1-in-5 Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of their lifetime," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, Sam's Club health-and-wellness SVP. "Sam's Club hopes to promote early detection and prevention of skin cancer. By offering free skin health screenings in our pharmacy areas, we can help educate how important it is to protect your skin."
