sunburnVirtually every adult can remember a time when they overdid it in their efforts to get that golden tan and instead ended up lobster red.  The result was painful and resulted in a peeling, flaking mess far from the desired result.  Perhaps you experienced sun sickness with blistering, nausea, chills, fever and even flu-like symptoms

A free presentation, “Saving Your Skin from the Summer Sun” will offer attendees the opportunity to learn about this most common form of cancer.  According to the Skin Cancer Foundation more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed annually.  

“Living in California, with its sunny skies, inviting beaches, deserts and mountains, and a passion for sun-tanned skin can be real risk factors for developing skin cancer for many people,” states Martha Osborne, RN, BSN and an Oncology Certified Nurse at The Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center.  “This class will help participants to identify risks, learn prevention tips, and hear about the newest treatments for those diagnosed with skin cancer.” 

 “Saving Your Skin from the Summer Sun” will be held at the Pomona Valley Health Center facilities in Claremont at 1601 N. Monte Vista Ave on June 13 and again at the Chino Hills site on June 28 at 2140 Grand Ave. The Pomona Valley Health Centers are affiliated services with Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center.  Classes at both locations will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Seating is limited and reservations are preferred.  This presentation is provided by PVHMC’s Women’s and Children’s Services as part of the “Every Woman’s Journey” on-going, educational series.  For more information or to register and reserve a seat for the presentation please call 909 865-9858 or email
