In April, Dr. Rick Green did a skin cancer presentation for the 60-member Newcomers Garden Club at the home of one of its members, Victoria Holman. The garden club started three years ago and is part of the Clark County Newcomers Club, which was started in 1954 and has about 460 members. The Clark County Newcomers Club helps people who are new to Clark County get to know the area – its entertainment and recreation possibilities, its resources, its community needs –and a few people who live here, too.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Incidents of skin cancer have been on the rise for many years, with people in their late 30s and early 40s at greatest risk.
