With spring technically here and summer not far behind, we might be thinking about our pale, Pacific Northwest skin and how best to protect it.

Why not start with a thorough examination?

The Providence Regional Cancer Partnership is offering its annual skin screening for people who are not under the care of a dermatologist.

This screening is free. The exam is done by a qualified provider and involves the full body to assess for any worrisome moles or lesions.

The exam takes less than 10 minutes. A list of referral physicians will be available for those who need follow-up care.

The free screenings will be held from 8 a.m. to noon May 5 at Providence Regional Cancer Partnership, Third Floor Medical Oncology Department, 1717 13th St., Everett.

For more information or to register, call Lynda Oehlsen at 425-297-5536.
