Women’s Dermatologic Society to Offer Skin Cancer Screenings
Date:9/5/2017

Marathon running has surged in popularity in the recent years, and New Yorkers have never been more in motion.

Outdoor running increases exposure to ultraviolet radiation, a carcinogen that promotes skin cancer. Studies show that marathon runners are at an increased risk of melanoma, and only half may be adequately protecting themselves with proper clothing and sunscreen.

The Women’s Dermatologic Society’s (WDS) award-winning Play Safe in the Sun Program is partnering with Susan G. Komen to participate at the September 10th Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in New York City’s Central Park.

Event Co-Chairs Yoon-Soo (Cindy) Bae, MD, and Jeannette Jakus, MD, will join with dozens of local volunteers to provide free skin cancer screenings, sun damage assessments, sun safety education & materials, and complimentary sunscreen samples to all race participants.

"Over 5 million skin cancers are diagnosed every year in the United States. Thankfully, many of these can be prevented through the use of safe sun practices! The Women's Dermatologic Society is proud to partner with the Susan G. Komen 'Race for the Cure' to raise awareness of skin cancer and to promote tools for practicing sun safety and skin cancer prevention," said Dr. Jakus.

Successfully managing exposure to ultraviolet radiation could prevent more than three million cases of skin cancer each year. Our goal is to raise awareness among the running community that prolonged outdoor running requires special attention to sun safety. Early detection saves lives.

“We are so excited to come together for such an important cause; to raise skin cancer awareness among the runners and supporters of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure event,” stated Dr. Bae. “As board certified dermatologists, we hope to educate everyone on the dangers of skin cancer and ways to practice safe sun habits.”

Location: Central Park, New York City, NY
Address: Event Expo, Located South of the 72nd Street Transverse
Date: Sunday, September 10, 2017
