May 6 Is Melanoma Monday!

It’s Melanoma Monday!  A day set aside by the American Academy of Dermatology, to raise awareness of Melanoma, and how to prevent it.  The most important thing to keep in mind s that there is no such thing as a “healthy” tan.  Sunscreen & sunblock are essential to skin health.  The American Academy of Dermatoligists has a great Melonoma awareness page.  The Melanoma Foundation of New England is also a great resource.  Melanoma survivor Meghan Rothschild (a Pioneer Valley local!) has a great web site, www.survingskin.org.  Protect your skin this summer, and all year long!
