Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. with an estimated 10,200 cases anticipated in California this year, according to the American Cancer Society. Most skin cancer cases and deaths are caused by exposure to UV radiation, and thus are potentially preventable. Dr. Plank will discuss how to
minimize these exposures with awareness and relatively simple actions.
