Policy Snapshot Examines Skin Cancer Facts

Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Even after the last days of summer weather are just a memory, it’s important to pay attention to our skin to ensure that any cause for concern does not go unnoticed. A basic understanding of skin cancer facts can help people know when a mole or blemish merits further examination by an expert. The Center for Health Affairs' August 2014 Policy Snapshot, Skin Cancer 101: What You Need to Know, aims to provide an overview of skin cancer basics.

The white paper examines a variety of skin cancer facts including types of skin cancer, incidence and survival rates, causes and risk factors and advice on how to protect yourself.

As the leading advocate for Northeast Ohio hospitals, The Center for Health Affairs provides members with vital services and resources aimed at enhancing the region’s healthcare community. The Center delivers on this goal by focusing its efforts on areas that benefit from a regional approach: healthcare workforce; emergency preparedness; public policy and advocacy; finance and reimbursement; and community initiatives. With a rich history as the Northeast Ohio hospital association, dating back to 1916, the Center serves as the collective voice of hospitals and the source for Northeast Ohio hospital and healthcare information. As leaders, we continuously scan the periphery, looking for opportunities to enhance the region’s workforce, better prepare our hospitals for an emergency, and increase the region’s wage index. And because of our business affiliation with CHAMPS Healthcare, we have the resources to provide a broad level of professional services to our members. The Center, located in downtown Cleveland, is proud to advocate on behalf of 38 acute-care hospitals and two long-term acute-care hospitals in six counties. For more, visit
