Rite Aid, The Skin Cancer Foundation educate consumers on proper skin care


CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid is partnering with The Skin Cancer Foundation to help educate consumers on the importance of smart skin care practices. Visitors to nearly 4,900 Rite Aid stores nationwide and online at can pick up a free 12-page guide with information from The Skin Cancer Foundation on how to prevent skin cancer by offering tips on wearing sunscreen and proper sunglasses.

Online at visitors will find an interactive body map to track skin changes on a regular basis, a section about the differences between harmless spots and unusual growths that need immediate medical attention, and the facts about UVA/UVB protection.

Rite Aid also is participating for the second year in the The Skin Cancer Foundation’s "Road to Healthy Skin Tour" presented by Aveeno and Rite Aid, making 80 stops across the country -- many of them local Rite Aid stores -- to provide early detection services to thousands of people. At each stop, local board-certified dermatologists will conduct free full-body skin cancer screenings on a 38-ft. customized RV in one of two private rooms. Educational materials that explain how to perform monthly skin checks at home and the proper ways to protect the skin from the sun on a daily basis also are provided, along with sunscreen samples, coupons and other useful information.
