Eye Exam Used For Cancer Detection
As part of its '101 Ways You Can Help Fight Cancer' campaign, the Institute for Good Medicine at the Pennsylvania Medical Society has dedicated its next Good Medicine web show on eye cancer and the importance of eye exams for eye cancer detection.
The web show on eye exams and eye cancer detection can be seen on the Family Health and Wellness website at http://www.myfamilywellness.org/Videos/Eye-Cancer.aspx or on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4UPd21UDMc.
During the three-minute web show, Peter S. Lund MD, founder of the Institute for Good Medicine, hosts Michael J. Azar, MD, an ophthalmologist from Monroeville, Pa., who describes eye cancer and offers tips on how to avoid it. Dr. Azar, a member of the Pennsylvania Medical Society, is also a past president of the Pennsylvania Academy of Ophthalmology.
Good Medicine is a spin-off of the Institute for Good Medicine’s monthly print column by the same name. It is written by Dr. Lund while tapping Pennsylvania Medical Society members to cover topics ranging from flu shots to tobacco use. Like the print version, Good Medicine is designed to educate the public on ways they can contribute to their health care through healthy living, thus hopefully avoiding the need for future medical help.
Additional information on ‘101 Ways You Can Help Fight Cancer’ may be found at www.myfamilywellness.org, a website designed by the Institute for Good Medicine at the Pennsylvania Medical Society for patients.
Both the print and web show versions of Good Medicine are provided free to the media for their use either in print, on the web, or on the air. Community groups and schools are also welcome to use these materials for free in their newsletters and web sites.
