Wellness webinar: Skin Cancer Awareness

As you spend more time in the sun this summer, don't forget to protect your skin.

Summer is a great time to relax and play in the sun. Whether you are gardening, swimming, or just spending time outdoors, protecting your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays—even on cloudy days—is very important because skin damage from the sun can lead to skin cancer, the most common types being basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma. Learn about the causes of skin cancer, prevention, early detection, risk factors, and how to perform self-examinations.

In coordination with UV Safety Month, attend the Skin Cancer Awareness webinar offered through vendor partner BCBS from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 21.
