Join Northern Inyo Healthcare District’s (NIHD) Dr. David Plank for a Healthy Lifestyle Talk on good skin care for those who enjoying an outdoor lifestyle. The talk, titled “SPF a Day Keeps the Wrinkles Away,” is set for Thursday, May 19, 5:30 p.m. This talk is free, open to the public to watch via YouTube or Zoom.

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. with an estimated 10,200 cases anticipated in California this year, according to the American Cancer Society. Most skin cancer cases and deaths are caused by exposure to UV radiation, and thus are potentially preventable. Dr. Plank will discuss how to minimize these exposures with awareness and relatively simple actions.

Dr. Plank is a board certified plastic surgeon serving Northern Inyo Healthcare District through the Northern Inyo Associates Specialty Clinic. Dr. Plank specializes in skin cancer treatments and reconstructive procedures. He has always been an avid outdoor enthusiast, spreading this love of the outdoors to his children. He has been visiting Bishop and the Eastern Sierra for more than 20 years.

This educational presentation is part of NIHD’s ongoing Healthy Lifestyle Talk Series. The talks are open to public and free of charge. Once again, the talk will be presented in two formats:
 Broadcast LIVE on the Northern Inyo Healthcare District YouTube channel. Please note that to participate in the Q&A session on YouTube, you will need to be logged into that service. If you do not have a YouTube or Gmail account, it would be best to log into Zoom.
