Amazing Apps: First Derm

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and I found out that First Derm's teledermatology service recently saved the life of an entrepreneur with malignant melanoma.

The average wait time to see a dermatologist is 29 days. This is especially troubling for those with a skin condition they fear may be cancerous.  First Derm’s mobile app allows individuals to snap a photo of their skin concern and receive a board-certified dermatologist’s evaluation within 24 hours. We've helped over 20,000 people in 160 countries find out what was going on with their skin. So far, over 500 cases of potential skin cancer have been found using the First Derm app.
