The Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department and Atlantic General Hospital will offer two free informational health seminars to the public this summer. The seminars will be held at the Ocean Pines Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines.
On Wednesday, July 13 from 5:30-6:30 pm Dr. Sara Moghaddam, a dermatologist at Atlantic General Hospital, will discuss the truth about sunscreens, what they are and how to use them. She will also discuss skin cancer surveillance and how to identify melanoma and other skin cancers.
Then on Wednesday, August 31 from 5:30-7 pm Dr. Roopa Gupta, a medical oncologist and hematologist at Atlantic General Hospital, will present a seminar on cancer prevention and treatment. She will share when recommended screenings should occur, risk factors, warning signs and what cancers are most commonly seen in our area. She will also answer questions from the audience.
