Free skin cancer screenings at Stadium

Ever since having a lesion removed surgically from the area near my right temple two years ago, I have been acutely aware of the dangers of skin cancer. The Yankees are, too, which is why fans attending Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium can benefit from a protective measure against the disease.

The Yankees will offer a free La Roche-Posay Skin Cancer screening for all ticketed fans from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Main Level behind the plate between Sections 217-223. Dr. Darrell Rigel and his team of dermatologists and medical assistants will conduct the screenings, which cover exclusively the arms and face and take less than a minute to complete.

In conjunction with the free screenings and in support of its 2011 SOS – Save Our Skin – campaign, La Roche-Posay will sponsor a sunscreen giveaway to the first 30,00 fans in attendance Sunday. Come on, it’s only a minute, do the healthy thing.
