Florida Skin Center and Founder Named Top National Skin Cancer Screener
FORT MYERS, FL. (December 29, 2020)- The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) has named Florida Skin Center Founder and Medical Director, Aurora Badia M.D., D.O., as the top screener, and the practice as top practice for performing the most free skin cancer screenings in the nation. This is the second consecutive year that ASDS has recognized Florida Skin Center for these achievements in its Choose Skin Health® program.
ASDS operates this year-round program in partnership with Neutrogena® promoting free skin cancer screenings to the public. Florida Skin Center performed 2,355 free skin checks in 2019-2020. This was an increase of 500 over the previous year despite the limitations and restrictions from the COVID -19 pandemic placed on non-essential services and group gatherings. The free skin checks, provided by Florida Skin Center in Southwest Florida, represent an impressive two-thirds of the total 3,500 annual free screenings provided by all ASDS participating members nationwide this year.
“It is an honor and a privilege to receive recognition as top screener for the most skin checks”, said Dr. Badia. “Our entire team is dedicated to sharing knowledge and information for the protection and detection of skin cancer. Providing free skin checks to our community is an actionable effort that is measured by more than just a number-early detection saves lives.”
Florida Skin Center offers free annual full-body skin care checks year-round to new and established patients, who are referred to as guests of the practice. This complimentary head-to-toe skin examination is offered once a year regardless of insurance, with a scheduled appointment. Guests can save between $15 and $91, and are introduced to a skin regimen tailored to their individual needs. Appointments can be made at any of the four Southwest Florida locations.
Florida Skin Center has offices in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and Punta Gorda. All locations offer readily available same-week and early-morning appointments. Ft. Myers and Cape Coral offices open on select Saturdays. Appointment scheduling and text messaging available online at FloridaSkinCenter.com or call (239) 561-3376.
