Congratulations to the winner of the 2017 Community Outreach Scholarship, Julie Marlowe!
We asked PA students in Florida to describe an educational program or PSA regarding a dermatologic topic that the FSDPA could implement to better the lives of Floridians. Ms. Marlowe focused on the importance of incorporating sunscreen use into our daily lives. She had great suggestions on the use of social media platforms to inform young adults about the necessity and ease of a daily sunscreen application routine.
Join us in Orlando April 12th-15th at this year’s New Wave Dermatology conference to see how we implement Julie’s winning suggestions!
