 Those of us who live in Southern California know that the sun can be our foe as well as our friend. Getting that beautiful SoCal tan can come at a price. The good news, however, is that most skin cancers are treatable if caught early. So, get out of the sun and come listen to what Dr. Janellen Smith and Dr. Jessica Shiu, board-certified dermatologists for UCI Health, can tell us about taking better care of our skin and getting proper treatment.
