Noon Notebook: Covenant to host free skin cancer screenings Monday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - To spread the word about Skin Cancer Awareness Month, two doctors with Covenant Health will host a free skin cancer clinic from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 6, inside their offices.

The doctors opening up their offices for this event are Dr. Richard Hope and Dr. Mike Lehman. The screenings will be inside Lehman Dermatology at 3715 21st St. and Lubbock Dermatology 3601 22nd St.

Researchers estimate skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S., with one person dying hourly from the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma, according to a Covenant news release. The doctors hope this will raise awareness about the importance of skin cancer screenings and ways to avoid the diseases.

This is a walk-in event only and space is limited.
