San Diego lifeguards, police officers and firefighters receive skin screenings

Local news outlets covered a free skin cancer screening event hosted by Scripps Health for San Diego lifeguards, firefighters and police officers. Scripps has hosted the screenings every summer for the past 15 years as a way of helping to keep first responders safe from sun-related skin damage.


The events are part of Scripps’ community benefit program, which includes a variety of programs to improve community health, including cardiac screenings, diabetes education, cancer support groups, skin screenings and many more.
