Albuquerque the First of Five New Markets Slated to Feature MoleSafe Skin Cancer Detection Facilities in 2009
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- MoleSafe (www.molesafe.com), a company that offers an advanced skin cancer detection program, announced today it has opened its second U.S. location in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company opened its first U.S. location in Millburn, New Jersey, in 2008. MoleSafe originated in New Zealand, which is the melanoma capital of the world. The company is scheduled to open in five new markets in the coming year. The Albuquerque location is overseen by Donald Harville, MD, a Board-certified dermatologist.
"As skin cancer continues to become increasingly pervasive in the U.S., taking thousands of lives each year, it is imperative that Americans take precaution," said Dr. Richard Bezozo, president of MoleSafe USA. "MoleSafe provides the most advanced and thorough skin cancer detection programs in the world. We're excited to open our second location in Albuquerque, while expanding our services to reach more cities and help save more lives."
"MoleSafe's advanced program is a proven answer to skin cancer detection, specifically melanoma, which is the deadliest of all skin cancers," said Dr. Donald Harville, manager of the Albuquerque MoleSafe. "When I learned about MoleSafe's technology and system, I was anxious to help bring it to Albuquerque. New Mexico ranks as one of the sunniest states in the country, and thus has one of the highest rates of sun-induced skin cancer."
MoleSafe's four-pronged detection program is utilized by more than 40 melanoma screening centers around the world. To date, MoleSafe has archived more than one million lesions, and close to two and half million lesion images, into its central database. These images have been made available to Memorial Sloan-Kettering
