PRL sponsors 9th annual Run from the Sun

PRL was proud to once again sponsor the UTHSCSA Dermatology Interest Group's Run From The Sun, a 5K walk to help promote skin cancer awareness. 100% of the proceeds from this 9th Annual Run goes towards the Travis Park Dermatology Clinic, which provides skin screenings and skin care for uninsured and under-insured local San Antonians.

Skin cancer is the leading cause of cancer in the world. Skin cancer can be prevented by avoiding prolonged sun exposure and using proper sun protection.

Annual skin checks can help catch skin cancer early, when it is treatable. Make an appointment with your dermatologist if you have any new or changing spots on your skin. If indicated, your dermatologist will take a skin biopsy and send it to a pathologist to examine under the microscope and determine the diagnosis. We are proud to be a part of your medical care team.
