    For Your Skinformation: Protecting Yourself from Skin Cancer

    Friday Jun 28
    12 pm - 1 pm

    Lake Charles Memorial Hospital

    Southwest Louisiana is known for being a sportsman’s paradise. Between weekends on the lake fishing, time spent in stadiums cheering on our favorite teams, to back yard barbecues by the pool—most of our summer is spent outdoors in the sunshine. But what does that mean for our skin? Louisiana has the 47th highest incidence and 44th highest death rate of skin cancer in the U.S. To learn about the causes for skin cancer and how to prevent it, join us for a free seminar, For Your Skinformation: Protecting Yourself from Skin Cancer, led by Marissa De La Paz, MD.

    Dr. De La Paz comes to Louisiana by way of Arkansas. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where she went on to receive her Graduate Certificate in Gerontology. She attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She’s currently a resident here at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital.

    For Your Skinformation: Protecting Yourself from Skin Cancer is a free seminar being held Friday June 28th, at 12 noon in the Shearman Conference Center at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance, and a light lunch will be provided. For more information or to reserve your seat, please visit www.lcmh.com/seminar or call (337) 494-2936. You can also watch this seminar live by visiting www.lcmh/watch
