HANCOCK – Physicians from the Marquette General Cancer Center will be in Hancock on May 12 offering free skin cancer screenings at Portage Health.

The skin screenings are offered free and are co-sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology. These free screenings are very popular, and require an appointment.

“Each year Marquette General has partnered with Portage Health to offer this clinic, it has been full,” said Angela Luskin, community health coordinator at Portage Health. “If you have something that you want looked at, I'd suggest calling early to make sure you reserve a spot."

Dr. Milton Soderberg and Dr. Jennifer Baldwin, board certified dermatologists will do brief examinations of unusual moles or lesions for signs of cancer from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Portage Health’s main campus in Hanccok on May 12.

There will also be free clinics in Marquette (May 5, call (906) 225-3500 to make an appointment) and Escanaba (May 19, call (906) 786-2172 to make an appointment).
