You have GOT to be kidding!

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.
