Appointments are still available for the skin cancer screening clinic for faculty and staff being held at Lafene Health Center on July 15, 16 and 17.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. It is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. The good news is that skin cancer is highly treatable when detected early.

Rosanne Kreller, Lafene's certified dermatology nurse practitioner, will provide the screenings in private exam rooms at Lafene Health Center. Kreller will examine exposed skin areas and will note findings and make recommendations for next steps, if needed. The screenings will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. There will be a $50 charge that will be submitted to insurance. Lafene Health Center is in-network for the State of Kansas Health Insurance but is not in-network for Medicaid or Medicare. The HealthQuest Rewards Program offered by the State Employee Health Plan awards five credits for completing a skin cancer screening.

Appointments can be made through the myLAFENE+ patient portal or by calling 785-532-6544. Any K-State employee is eligible for this service. Patients will need to check in at Lafene 10 minutes prior to their appointment.
