A friend of my friend, who is the Author of Adventures with My Enemy: Melanoma, recently went to her first OB/GYN appointment since becoming pregnant. The "doctor" gave her this:
Catch the part about tanning? Are you KIDDING me? This....from a physician?
I'm stunned. This just goes to show how much work there is to be done in educating people...including doctors...about melanoma. I wish I knew who this physician was. I'd make an appointment, and then I'd show up armed with a ton of information. I'd bring brochures and posters and pamphlets; anything I could get my hands on really, that would clue this person in. His/her patients deserve that.
