Skin HealthAdult Events 05/07/2019, 2:00 PM Main Library – Auditorium
Skin Cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most of this exposure comes from the sun, but some may come from man-made sources, such as indoor tanning beds and sun lamps.
The good news is that you can do a lot to protect yourself and your family from UV rays, as well as to catch skin cancer early so that it can be treated effectively.
Presented by Ross I. Zbar, M.D.
