Event description

Description

South Australians living in rural areas have a higher chance of developing skin cancer. What’s more, agriculture, viticulture 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, and treatable if detected early. Join us to find out how you can best reduce your risk.

During the seminar, you’ll learn:
> why protecting your skin from UV is so important
> when and how you should be protecting your skin
> how to check yourself for early signs of skin cancer

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.

10:00am Start, please arrive by 9:45am
10:45am Q&A
11:00am Light refreshments and networking

This seminar has been generously funded by the Langhorne Creek community. Attendance is free of charge.
