American Skin Association Honors Leading Physicians and Scientists; Journalist Deborah Norville
Date:10/26/2011

NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- One week after a CDC report outlined the devastating nature of melanoma, the most serious of skin cancers, which causes 8,000 U.S. deaths and costs billions of dollars each year, American Skin Association (ASA), a collaboration of patients, families, advocates, physicians and scientists, last night honored leading physicians and scientists who have made groundbreaking discoveries and unique contributions to the field of dermatology and the treatment of skin cancer as well as other devastating skin disorders.  

Also honored was journalist Deborah Norville, who received ASA's Education Award.

In addition to raising funds for cutting-edge skin disease research, ASA's Gala helps underwrite educational outreach programs for students, directly answering the CDC report's call for new policies and prevention strategies to address the leading preventable causes of melanoma, enabling people to be healthier, live longer and be more productive.  The Report was released on October 19th and is available at: http://www.eblue.org/webfiles/images/journals/ymjd/MelanomaSupplementProof.pdf

American Skin Association's mission is to advance research, champion skin health - particularly among children - and drive public awareness about skin disease. ASA's education program provides free instruction in skin health and sun safety to more than 12 million young people, teachers and parents across the United States.

Ms. Norville was selected because of her professional and charitable endeavors, including her anchor position on Inside Edition, as a best-selling author and her involvement in numerous charities, including the Broadcasters Foundation of America and the Girl Scouts Council of Greater New York.
