SPRINGFIELD, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is inviting residents to participate in the 2019 “Choose Your Cover” program. As part of a free statewide skin cancer screening, awareness and educational initiatives will be held on Saturday, Aug. 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Springfield Community Pool.

The pool is located at 44 Morrison Road in Springfield, and the event will be held rain or shine. The event is open to all residents, but pre-registration is required to schedule a free skin cancer screening.

Residents interested in a screening can call the Union County Office of Health Management at (908) 518-5620 to pre-register. Members of the public who are not pre-registered for screening can still come to the pool and learn how to keep from being overexposed to the sun.
