Research has shown that 80% of all skin cancers could be prevented by using protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Staying in the shade from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m., wearing a hat and covering as much skin as possible will reduce the risk of skin cancer later in life.
A free skin cancer screening, sponsored by the Paramus Board of Health, will be held on Tuesday, July 13th from 1:30 – 3:30 pm, (Raindate, Tuesday, August 3rd) at the Paramus Municipal Pool. Dr. Monika Srivastava from Advanced Laser & Skin Cancer Center in Teaneck, New Jersey will perform the screenings. Pool members are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and to have any sun damaged skin examined.
For questions, call 201-265-2100, Ext. 615 or 618.

New Jersey Offers Free Resources for Women with Postpartum Depression and Other Perinatal Mood Disorders

For every 8 in 10 births, new mothers will experience at least a brief episode of the "baby blues" – feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness, or moodiness – within the first few days of giving birth. After a couple of weeks these symptoms typically disappear. However, when symptoms persist or deepen in intensity, they may be a sign of postpartum depression or another perinatal mood disorder.
