The Case for Banning Sunbeds
Following an MCRC Town Hall in 2018, a multi-disciplinary team from across Manchester set out to demonstrate the melanoma prevention and health economic benefits of banning indoor tanning facilities. The results from their study have now been published in the Journal of Dermatology.
