Description

Whole U Speaker Series: Skin cancer prevention from vitamin A to Zinc (oxide) with Jennifer Gardner M.D., Assistant Professor, Dermatology, UW School of Medcine.

This seminar will cover tips on how to prevent skin cancer, including melanoma, and debunk myths around sunscreen ingredients. It will also answer commonly asked questions including what’s the deal with a “base tan,” how does diet and supplements help (or harm) prevention efforts, what is the best way to get vitamin D, and what to look for in sun-protective clothing.  It will conclude with a discussion on the risk for skin cancer living here in the Pacific Northwest (Spoiler Alert: we’ve got some of the highest rates of melanoma in the entire country, right here in the Puget Sound area!)
