Learn How to Protect Yourself Against Skin Cancer
(Dayton, OH) April 1, 2010 – As the weather starts to warm, people can't wait to spend time outdoors. While fresh air is a healthy thing, lots of sunshine may not be so good for you. Too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can be damaging to your skin and can lead to skin cancer. Learn how to protect yourself and your family against skin cancer by attending the next Mall Walkers Club health event set for Friday, April 9 at the Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek.

Brown will provide information on skin cancer prevention and what to look for when examining you skin for irregularities. Participants can also take advantage of a Dermascan screening that determines sun damage to the face. The free event begins at 8:45 a.m. in the food court and healthy snacks will be served.
