Spot the Spot was developed to educate you on how to protect and inspect your skin to help prevent and identify skin cancer and other skin-related conditions.

By educating and empowering you, and by working closely with your doctor, we hope to reverse the current trend of increasing skin cancer rates. Our goal is to help you develop a better understanding of your skin, how to protect and inspect it and how to potentially prevent health problems in the future associated with overexposure to harmful UV radiation.
