National Melanoma Skin Cancer Awareness Month, designated by the American Academy of Dermatology, is celebrated in May to raise awareness of the risk of skin cancer and increase the chances of early detection.

“For those of us who live along the southern coastline, staying out of the sun is often not practical or desirable,” Howington said. “It’s important for everyone to learn some simple but essential ways to protect their skin from the sun’s dangerous UV rays before they and their family head off to enjoy the great outdoors.”

Howington is a board-certified dermatologist with expertise in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. She and her staff gave participants SPF30 sunscreen, which has been shown to prevent the onset of some types of skin cancer.

Proceeds from the event are benefiting the Curtis & Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute in Savannah. More information for Melanoma, Take a Hike! Skin Cancer Awareness Excursion with Low Country Dermatology can be found at http://lcderm.com/melanoma-take-hike/
