SMH Sites Successful Skin Cancer Awareness Open House

-  The Health Information Library at Stephens Memorial Hospital recently hosted a successful Skin Cancer Awareness Open House.  Health Educator Chriss Hayden from the City of Portland's Public Health Division was on hand to discuss causes, risk factors, and prevention of skin cancer.   Attendee Carol Sweetser received some valued information from Hayden and went home with handouts regarding the risks of sun exposure as well as how to protect herself. 

Some specific topics participants learned about included sunproofing children, the dangers of tanning booths, and how often to reapply sunblock.  If interested in learning more about these issues please contact the Health Information Library. 

The Health Information Library is open to the public Monday-Thursday, from 10 AM- 4 PM and is staffed by a professional librarian to provide patients, students, and the public with the quality health information they need to make good health decisions.  Contact Deborah Clark at 743-1562 x323 or clarkd@wmhcc.org for more details.
