Chicago Bears Join the American Academy of Dermatology in Fight against Skin Cancer
Date:7/30/2014

eloping the disease compared to the rest of the general public. In fact, a recent survey by the Academy found that while more than 90% of American men know something about skin cancer, only six in 10 (61%) know how to detect signs on their skin, and even fewer actually visit a doctor for annual skin cancer screenings (18%).

At the Bears' SPOT me™ event on August 2, a team of board-certified dermatologists will be conducting free skin cancer screenings between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at Soldier Field.

"I think Chicagoans may have a false sense of security when it comes to sun protection.  While our temperatures and sun exposure are more moderate than cities in the south and west, we are all at risk for skin cancer. In fact, even on cloudy days, up to 80% of the sun's harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin," said board-certified dermatologist Ashish Bhatia, MD, FAAD, Associate Professor of Clinical Dermatology at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. "We should all protect our skin by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and applying broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. It's also important to learn how to identify the signs of skin cancer, and if you see anything suspicious on your skin, to visit a board-certified dermatologist. Early detection should be part of everyone's game plan."WHAT:Chicago Bears and the American Academy of Dermatology's SPOT me™ Skin Cancer Screening WHEN:Saturday, August 2 – 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.WHERE:Chicago Bears Meijer Family Fest, Soldier Field (1410 Museum Campus Dr, Chicago, IL 60605)PRICE:FREE skin cancer screeningsTo learn more about skin cancer prevention and detection and to find a free SPOT me™ skin cancer screening near you, visit www.spotme.org.
