VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Dermatologists encourage people to take advantage of some free skin cancer screenings coming up in Valdosta in the next couple of weeks. 

They say these screening events are an important part of making people aware of the dangers of skin cancer. "It does help to make people aware that UV light from the sun and from tanning beds cause skin cancers," said Dr. William R. Howard, a Valdosta Dermatologist.
 
The screenings will be held each Thursday in May 2014, beginning May 8th, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Pearlman Cancer Center at South Georgia Medical Center.
