Belmont High School “Hallway Health” Program

Hallway Health

Melanoma

Tuesday, March 31st ,   11:00-1:00

Cafeteria Lobby

As part of the Belmont High School (BHS) “Hallway Health” program, Steve Fine, the founder and president of the Melanoma Education foundation, will visit BHS on Tuesday, March 31st from 11:00 – 1:00.  Steve lost his son to melanoma in 1998, when his son was 26 years old.  Since that time, he has devoted his life to educating the public, especially our youth, about this deadly disease.  He has created a foundation that has educated thousands of people about melanoma prevention,  identification, and care.  Melanoma is unique among cancers.  It is the easiest of all cancers to self-detect at an early stage when it is curable by simple excision in an outpatient setting. But when not caught early, it is among the most malignant and incurable of all cancers.

All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to stop by the “Hallway Health” table outside of the cafeteria  on March 31st for information and a facial skin check.
