Mobile truck offers skin-cancer screening in Elk Grove
Sacramento Bee

From bronze windsurfers to cream-colored infants, Sacramentans of all shades and ages withstood the hot black concrete of a Rite Aid parking lot Tuesday to get a free skin cancer screening from a mobile dermatology clinic.

The 38-foot recreational vehicle parked at the Elk Grove pharmacy for the day was part of the Skin Cancer Foundation’s “Road to Healthy Skin” tour, which has been traveling the country for months in an effort to catch America’s most common cancer in its early stages. Sacramento is one of more than 50 stops the bus will make in 17 states.
