SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Free skin cancer screenings will be conducted Saturday at Chargers Park as part of the national Melanoma Exposed campaign, which seeks to raise awareness of melanoma and its risk factors and encourage people to be screened.
"We are proud to take part in this program because it helps our fans become more knowledgeable about the risk factors of this preventable disease,'' Chargers CEO A.G. Spanos said in announcing the team's partnership with the campaign.
"Living in San Diego where it's almost always sunny, we know how critical it is to protect ourselves from sun exposure with players and coaches spending so many hours outside. It's important that our fans take the same precautions," he said
The screenings will be conducted by licensed dermatologists and other health care professionals from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Everyone being screened will receive a prize from the Chargers.
