Fireside Chats

The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement recently launched a new virtual series called Fireside Chats with the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement. The Fireside Chats are free monthly sessions intended to educate community audiences on cancer and health-related topics presented by experts in easy to understand language. 
 
Experts give flash talks on a particular cancer or health-related topic followed by a discussion that allows community audiences to engage in conversation and ask questions "fireside chat style." Some sessions will include a discussion with a panel of experts.
 

Upcoming Fireside Chat

 
 
 
May is National Melanoma & Skin Cancer Awareness Month! Did you know that skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States? Most skin cancer cases are caused by excess exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun and artificial sources such as indoor tanning. Although some people, due to their exposures, are at higher risk of developing skin cancer than others, anyone can get it.
 
Join the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement and Dr. Rachel Vogel for a conversation on skin cancer - what it is, learn tips on how you can protect yourself, screening options, and hear about the latest research on potential interventions to reduce sun exposure.
