TRH will hold free skin cancer screening clinic

THREE RIVERS, MI – Three Rivers Health is proud to participate in Skin Cancer Awareness
Month. During the month of May, join us in taking action to prevent skin cancer and reduce
the risk of UV damage.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV)
radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV damage can also cause wrinkles
and blotches or spots on your skin. The good news is that skin cancer can be prevented, and
it can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early.
“It’s important to remind the public to protect their skin from ultraviolet radiation while enjoying
the outdoors,” said Dr. Semler.
Dr. Semler will be at Three Rivers Health Specialty Clinic on Thursday, May 5, 1:30 to 4:30
p.m., performing free skin cancer detection exams.
Take simple steps today to protect your skin:
• Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
• Use sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. Put on sunscreen every 2 hours and after you swim
or sweat.
• Cover up with long sleeves and a hat.
• Check your skin regularly for changes.
Please call 269.273.9691 to schedule your appointment.
