CHARLESTON, S.C. South Carolina physicians representing the Women’s Dermatological Society provided free skin cancer screenings and education to attendees at the Family Circle Cup recently held in Charleston. Leading the local event was dermatologist Marguerite Germain as part of a three-year community service campaign presented in a collaborative partnership with L’Oreal USA.
The three-year outreach, made possible through a grant from L’Oreal USA to the WDS Foundation, draws from the organization’s 1,600 members to heighten sun safety awareness and promote healthy skin practices among outdoor sports enthusiasts. Garnier provided sun protection product donations.
“As we enter the second year of this outreach, we know that educating the public about sun safety is critical. We are proud to be a part of this nationwide efforts as we, along with the WDS, continue to inform both players and spectators of outdoor sports about the importance of sun protection,” stated Philippe Patsalides, general manager of Active Cosmetics Division for L’Oreal.
