Community Education Program
The dermatologists and staff at The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center are committed to educating our patients and community about ways to achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin. We find that everyone would like to have healthy, youthful looking skin. However, most people simply do not know how to achieve and maintain it.
We would be happy to provide your employees useful information on how important it is to take care of our largest organ throughout the course of our life. Early detection, like any other disease, is very important with all skin conditions. A good understanding of maintaining healthy skin is very valuable to each and every one of us.
As part of our community education program, we have developed a series of concise presentations given by our dermatologists, Dr. Andrew Menkes and Dr. Lillian Soohoo, who will discuss topics of interest regarding skin care and dermatology. These presentations are informal and will allow your employees to ask questions and incorporate the latest information on skin care.
Our seminars / presentations can provide simple hints to help anyone look and feel their very best. Important tips such as:
- Wearing sunscreen and protective sun wear
- Qualifying your sunscreen by making sure it contains specific ingredients
- Visiting a dermatologist for annual skin checks
- Using a good daily skin care regimen
- Paying attention to mole size, color and shape
These information sessions typically last from 30 minutes to one hour and recent presentations have included the following topics:
- Healthy Skin for the Entire Family
- What’s New with Vitamin D?
- How to Keep Kids Sun Safe
- Skin Cancer Prevention and Treatment
- Refreshing Your Appearance–Simple Ways to Achieve Beautiful Skin
- Cosmetic Surgery–Is it for You?
If you would like Dr. Menkes and Dr. Soohoo to come to your facility to present our healthy skin seminars or to participate in a corporate-sponsored health care event such as free skin cancer screenings, please contact our Practice Marketing Coordinator, Karen Keith at The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center at (650) 962-4600 or [email protected]
We would appreciate the opportunity to tailor a program specific to fit the needs of your employees. Offering your employees a resource like this can be very valuable to them as well as extremely important for their overall well-being.
