Before you spend the next three months sunning yourself on the hill at Barton Springs, it might be a good idea to get your skinned checked out! And here’s the easiest way to do it: The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Destination Healthy Skin RV is back for its third year, and will stop in Austin on June 8–9! This dermatologist’s office on wheels has two private exam rooms and travels around the country all summer long.

Inside local dermatologists will provide free full-body skin cancer screenings, which are first come, first served. They are on a mission to save lives and screening is everything when it comes to the health of your skin. Participants also get educational materials and Shiseido brand Clear Stick UV Protector SPF 50+.  

At each stop, Walgreens specially trained beauty consultants and pharmacists will be on-hand to distribute sunburn alert stickers, educate visitors on the importance of sun protection, provide recommendations for sun care and sunburn treatments, and advise patients on medication that can cause photosensitivity. Additionally, their nurse practitioners will operate a Canfield Reveal Imager, a portable skin analysis imaging system that visualizes UV damage.

When: June 8th ,10 a.m.–4 p.m. & June 9th, noon-4p.m.

Location: Zilker Park, 2100 Barton Springs Rd (The parking lot by the beach volleyball courts)
