Outpacing Melanoma is hosting a free skin cancer screening from 11am-2pm on Saturday, August 13 in the Chiropractic Family Health Center on 1213 Hylton Heights in Manhattan. It is a walk-in screening and open to the public. Outpacing Melanoma, a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research and promoting early detection, screening, and prevention in the fight against skin cancer, was founded in memory of Riley County native, Richard Klover, who died from melanoma at the age of 46.
Dermatologists from the University of Kansas Medical Center will be on hand to provide the screenings. Assessments of facial sun damage and bone density tests will also be available. The event is being coordinated by Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA), the outreach division of The University of Kansas Cancer Center.
An interview with Kelly Klover, wife of Richard and founder of Outpacing Melanoma follows:
