Epiphany Dermatology Tour
A Lifesaving Tour Across the Southwest
To refocus public attention on sun safety and skin screening, The Sun Bus has expanded its services to Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas for the 2021 season.
Thanks to generous contributions from Epiphany Dermatology, Castle Biosciences, and other supporting sponsors, The Sun Bus is providing sun safety education and FREE skin cancer screenings at over 50 locations across the southwest!
If you or a loved one would like to visit The Sun Bus for a free screening, visit our Calendar of Events page to find a location and time that is most convenient for you.
Since the season debut of The Sun Bus Tour on May 3, we have provided free skin screening at 27 locations across Texas and Colorado.
In the 30 days that The Sun Bus provided skin screening services in Texas and Colorado, more than 1,300 Sun Bus visitors were screened!
Volunteer Physicians from Epiphany and other Dermatology offices donated more than 174 Hours to provide free screening on The Sun Bus.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States but fortunately, it is also one of the most preventable. The majority of skin cancer and melanoma cases are associated with exposure to harmful UV radiation from the sun and artificial tanning sources. By educating individuals about the importance of sun-safety, self-checks, and screening, we can help to save lives!
If you notice any new spots on your skin, spots that are different from others, or spots that are changing, itching, or bleeding, check out our Calendar of Events and schedule your FREE screening with The Sun Bus today!

Annual skin checks by your dermatologist are recommended; however, these screenings are not feasible for all. The Sun Bus is a mobile clinic with 2 patient exam rooms outfitted to administer free skin checks to community members with the help of local Epiphany Dermatology dermatologists and skin health providers.
The Sun Bus is outfitted with sophisticated cameras to provide live educational demonstrations of how the sun damages skin and how sunscreen protects us from these dangerous rays. These personalized demonstrations, as well as sun safety and skin cancer literature, are free to all who visit the Sun Bus.
Thanks to EltaMD, the Sun Bus is able to provide FREE sunscreen to the community at all events it attends. Visitors can also purchase their very own EltaMD products, Wallaroo Hats, Sunday Crew UPF rated clothing, Umbrellas, and Sunglasses directly from The Sun Bus.
