The Road to Healthy Skin Tour pulled into the Rite Aid in Kennewick, WA, shortly after 9 AM to find a crowd awaiting our arrival. Once Sidney Smith, MD, and his medical assistants Brenda and Sherilynn arrived, they got to work on screening the eager public. Throughout the six-hour screening, with only a 30-minute break for lunch, they were able to screen 82 patients, detecting two suspected melanomas, plus 62 suspected skin precancers, 10 suspected basal cell carcinomas, and three suspected squamous cell carcinomas. Once again this location lived up to its reputation—it’s always busy in Kennewick!
