New York’s best tanning salons will open a day early in the city’s Lower East Side as part of a campaign to reduce the citywide cost of skin cancer treatment.
The campaign aims to reduce total health care spending for the city in 2024 by $3.8 billion and to reach 1 million patients by 2020.
The health department announced the new initiative on Wednesday as part in a campaign called #SaveSkin.
It will start with the new salon at 7 a.m. on Thursday.
The cost will be $99 per hour.
The first session starts at 6 p.m., and the second and third sessions will start at 8 a.
