Clinical Corner:
Is there such a thing as a safe suntan?


Summertime means spending lots of time outdoors. For many, that means soaking up the sun's rays as much as possible.

While the "summer glow" can be something many hope for in the summer months, it may not necessarily be healthy for you. "If you're exposed to the sun, there is potential for damage," says Stephen Lynch, MD, Vice Chief of Staff and Primary Care/Intake Physician at Cancer Treatment Centers of America Phoenix.

Learn more about how skin tans, and what you can do to protect your skin.

Belly Dancing for Beginners
With Nikka Pamenter

Belly Dance has many benefits for your mind, body, and emotional state. In this class, you will learn classic moves like the shimmy and snake arms. Whether you are belly dancing for enjoyment, toned abs, or to reduce stress it is a wonderful way to let loose, connect with others, and release your inner "you". 

This belly dance class is for all shapes, sizes, and ages and can be adapted. 

Every Tuesday in July at 2pm.
