Mt. Pleasant Library holds Skin Health Fair, Nov. 14
 

From skin cancer to acne, Skin Health Fair offers free information

 

With Charlestonians spending so much time outdoors in boats, at the beach or visiting the area’s many parks, residents are particularly at risk of suffering from various skin conditions, ranging from skin cancers to acne.

To help residents learn how to prevent, recognize and treat various skin conditions, Charleston County Public Library is offering a free Skin Health Fair from 1-4 p.m., Saturday, November 14th at the Mt. Pleasant Regional Library, 1133 Mathis Ferry Rd., Mt. Pleasant. The free health fair will include information stations plus talks by medical professionals with expertise in the field, including skin cancers, skin diseases such as Rosacea and Psoriasis, acne control for all ages and the importance of moisturizing. 

Charleston County Public Library was one of only 10 libraries in the nation to win a grant from the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Skin Deep Project to help educate the public on how to take care of the body’s largest organ – their skin.

Dr. Diana Antonovich from MUSC’s Department of Dermatology will speak at 1:30 p.m. about prevention and care associated with skin cancers, and Dr.  Rocky Bacelieri with East Coast Dermatology will speak at 2:30 p.m. about other common skin conditions. Informational posters from students at Buist Academy will be displayed, and a gift basket of Neutrogena skin products will be given as a door prize.
