September 16, Austin, TX: Texas Hospitality

It was a rainy day when the Road to Healthy Skin Tour made a stop at the REI store located in the Gateway shopping center in Austin, TX. Christopher Jones, MD and Daniel Ladd, DO volunteered their afternoon to provide free skin cancer screenings and made the best of the unfortunate weather, which, thankfully, did not deter participants from lining up. Miranda Darr from Tru-skin Dermatology and the Shade Project came by with several other people to help at the event; they talked to the participants in line and provided an extra tent to keep them out of the rain while they waited. Dr. Jones and Dr. Ladd were able to screen 38 participants within the 4-hour event and detected 60 suspicious findings, none of which were melanoma.
