NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Amidst rising melanoma rates in younger women, a volunteer team of dermatologists representing the Women's Dermatologic Society (WDS) will jump into the popular arena of professional tennis for the first time, providing free skin cancer screenings for spectators at the Pilot Pen Tennis Tournament in New Haven, CT on August 17, 2008.

The WDS initiative targets outdoor enthusiasts who face a heightened risk of developing skin cancer due to prolonged sun exposure. Reaching out to tennis fans with the message of sun safety broadens the focus of the lay Safe in the Sun outreach, well known on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour since 2004. Supported for the next three years by L'Oreal USA in collaborative partnership with the WDS, the service fulfills an important need, as demonstrated by the significant number of skin cancers identified during outreach events.

The New Haven outreach is co-chaired by WDS members and Yale University faculty Mona Gohara, MD, clinical instructor of dermatology and Sumaira Aasi, MD, Assistant Professor in Dermatology. The pair has organized a volunteer team of fellow New Haven dermatologists to offer free skin cancer screenings, sun safety education and free sunscreen to spectators at this important final tennis match before the U.S. Open.

In commemoration of the WDS event, New Haven Mayor John DiStefano will declare Sunday, August 17 as "Play Safe in the Sun" Day citywide in support of the importance of skin cancer awareness and sun protection for local citizens.
