Rite Aid's skin care tour on road again

CAMP HILL, Pa. — Thousands of Rite Aid customers across the United States can get free, full-body skin cancer screenings this spring.

The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Road to Healthy Skin Tour will visit more than 60 Rite Aid stores in 19 states, sponsored by the retail pharmacy chain and Aveeno. The tour has screened more than 10,000 people since 2008, according to Rite Aid, catching 3,700 potential skin cancers and precancers, including about 200 suspected cases of the deadly skin cancer melanoma.

“We’re proud to have sponsored the Road to Healthy Skin Tour every year since its inaugural journey,” Rite Aid EVP pharmacy Robert Thompson stated. “These screenings have undoubtedly saved lives through early detection, and are a testament to the power of proactive health care.”

Local dermatologists will volunteer to lend their expertise to perform the screenings. A map of the tour is available at SkinCancer.org/tour.
