Associates in Dermatology Helps Golf Pros Play it Safe in the Sun with 2 days of Free Skin Cancer Screenings!
February 4, 2014
Dr. Steppie is starting off 2014 by continuing its skin cancer awareness outreach efforts in the Central Florida community. And this year, he is reaching out to the golfing community.
Avid golfers spend lots of time in the sunshine, which means they’re constantly exposed to harmful UV rays – by far the leading cause of skin cancer. That’s why Dr. Michael Steppie, has arranged for Associates in Dermatology’s healthcare providers to perform partial skin cancer screenings during the Orlando Golf Industry Show on February 5 and 6.
The Golf Industry Show (GIS) takes place at the Orange County Convention Center, located in the heart of the region’s tourism district. Approximately 8,000 representatives from golf courses and golf course owners associations from around the country attend the show each year. These golf course professionals and their staff are at a particularly high skin cancer risk due to the sheer amount of time their jobs require them to be outside in the sun. For them, early skin cancer detection is critical, but busy schedules can limit their opportunity to be screened regularly.
To that end, Dr. Steppie is committed to educating golfers and golfing industry professionals on the risks of and treatments for skin cancer – an epidemic in the golf community. He has partnered with The Sun SafeTee® Program, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that (www.sunsafetee.org ) that teaches golfers how to protect themselves in the sun. And Dr. Steppie’s editorial, Playing it Safe on the Golf Course, published in golf directories available in the top 10 Orlando Golf country clubs (including Bay Hill, Isleworth, Windermere, the Ritz Carlton, Orlando Golden Bear at Keene’s Point) for the past three years will be distributed to attendees.
