A MOBILE unit of the AECC visits Gandia Beach on Tuesday July 28 to talk to residents and holidaymakers about the detrimental effects of sun on the skin.
Information will be available on melanoma and other possible skin problems, how to check for skin disorders and how to achieve a prompt and professional diagnosis.
The mobile unit may be consulted free of charge with a professional dermatologist on hand to answer questions.
Councillor for Health Gandia Liduvina Gil, accompanied by the president of AECC Gandia Hernandis Loreto and the deputy director of AECC Valencia, Javier Llombart, endorsed the importance of this invaluable and totally free service, especially in the summer months when so many beachgoers expose their skin to danger by overdosing on Spain’s constant summer sunshine.
Llombart pointed out that between 200 and 300 people visit the mobile unit and 75 per cent of those are visiting for the first time.
The AECC’s tips for how to stay safe in the sun include using sunscreen of at least factor 30, renewing cream every hour after swimming, avoiding exposure to the sun between 12pm and 4pm and always wearing sunglasses and a hat or using an umbrella to filter the sun – in fact all the things your mother always told you!
