Portland Dermatologists to Show LPGA Safeway Classic Fans How to 'Play Safe in the Sun'
Date:8/25/2009

PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- In a region known more for its rainfall than sunshine, a team of Portland dermatologists representing the Women's Dermatologic Society (WDS) will return for the third time in six years to the LPGA Safeway Classic to promote sun safety for all seasons and skin types. This picturesque yet often cloudy venue has proven to draw golf lovers who need greater awareness about skin protection, as shown by the previous screenings' 37% skin cancer discovery rate.
