UPMC to offer free skin cancer screenings at Harmar office

Emily Balser

The public will have a chance to receive a free skin cancer screening in May at the UPMC St. Margaret Dermatology office in Harmar.

The screenings take less than five minutes and, if anything is detected, patients will be given a further exam by the physician.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on May 22.

Screening times are limited and an appointment is required. To schedule an appointment, call 412-784-5534 and leave a message with your name and daytime number. A staff member will return calls to schedule an appointment.

UPMC St. Margaret Dermatology is located at One Alexander Building, 2585 Freeport Road, Suite 204. It’s located next to Fitness 1440.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
