Epiphany Dermatology Tour
A Lifesaving Tour Across New Mexico
According to the American Cancer Society, more than 650 New Mexicans will be diagnosed with melanoma in 2021. To refocus public attention on sun safety and skin screening, The Sun Bus is expanding its services to New Mexico for the month of September! Thanks to generous contributions from Epiphany Dermatology and other supporting sponsors, The Sun Bus will be providing sun safety education and FREE skin cancer screenings at over 10 locations in New Mexico and El Paso!
Since New Mexico is located in the Sun Belt and has warm temperatures and sunshine throughout the year, the odds of getting skin cancer are increased. If you are concerned about something on your skin and 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, we have provided screening services at 16 locations across central and north Texas.
In the 17 days that The Sun Bus has provided screening services in Texas, more than 500 visitors have been screened.
Volunteer Physicians from Epiphany Dermatology donated more than 100 Hours to provide Screenings 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!
This September, The Colorado Melanoma Foundation and Epiphany Dermatology are hitting the road to provide FREE skin cancer screening and sun-safety education to individuals in New Mexico.
If you notice any new spots on your skin, spots that are different from others, or spots that are changing, itching, or bleeding, register to receive 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.
