248. Sun Exposure and Operators

Doc Derwae was an OSS Rescue Doc at Nellis and then completed a residency in Dermatology at U PENN. She is now an USAF Dermatology Attending.

Here she discusses the science behind sun damage to the skin and risk of skin cancer. The cumulative injury to the skin over a career is real and preventible.
Skin protection from the sun is analogous to HPO programs and injury prevention and reduction to improve your lifetime health. It is also important to understand to protect your children.
