The Partnership's core mission to reduce the burden of cancer in Rhode Island is put into effect through our annual skin cancer screenings. These screenings, or Skin Checks, are held throughout the state during the summer season, which is a time when people are more often exposed to the sun and its harmful rays. 

Below is a list of the dates and locations for the 2022 Skin Checks. We are partnering with NBC 10 WJAR, Brown Dermatology, Lifespan Community Health Institute, Rhode Island Department of Health, and Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management to provide this complimentary service at beaches across the state. No prior registration is required for our events.

State Sunscreen Dispenser Campaign

We partnered with Raw Elements USA, the State of Rhode Island, and South County Dermatology this past summer to launch complimentary certified natural, environmentally-safe sunscreen dispensers at all state beaches and parks across the state. These dispensers provide sunscreen to protect residents, tourists, and employees from harmful UV rays. Learn more about the program by watching the video below!
