Event description

Description

South Australians living in rural areas have a higher chance of developing skin cancer. What’s more, agriculture and other outdoor workers are at increased risk due to the many hours spent working outside, often unprotected from harmful UV radiation.

Despite many South Australians being able to identify UV as the major cause of skin cancer, it’s a common misconception that UV is related to hot weather.

Skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Reducing your risk is a matter of adopting a number of everyday habits.

Dr Gerry Considine, who has a specialty in skin cancer checks and management, will begin the session talking about what to expect as part of screening and what treatment options are available. Gerry is based in the mid north and also works across the state performing outreach rural skin cancer clinics.

Cancer Council SA will conclude the session on the importance of protecting your skin from UV and when and how you should be protecting your skin.

All attendees receive a skin cancer awareness pack which includes a free personal skin cancer early detection tool and a number of additional SunSmart resources to take home. Registration is essential.
