Wednesday, October
15, 2008, at 12:00 Noon, I am hosting my show “The Advocates” on WVOX- 1460 AM,
or you can listen to the program’s live streaming at One can call the show at
914-636-0110 to reach us on the radio.  Our
guest today is Dr. Alison Stallings, who is a medical dermatologist
based in Tarrytown, NY with Advanced Dermatology of Westchester.
Dr. Stallings who is originally from Mahopac,
New York, received her Bachelors
degree in Molecular Biology in 1998 and graduated from Colgate University Magna
Cum Laude.  She went on to complete her
Medical Degree from Tulane University School of Medicine where she was elected
to the AOA medical honor society.  She
completed her residency training in Dermatology at Tulane University School of
Medicine.  This
week’s subject on The Advocates is”

Sun and the Myths About Skin Cancer, Is the Public Really Informed?” Some of
the common myths that will be addressed are the following:

Only the
elderly can get skin cancer!

It takes
years for the effects of the sun to show up!

skinned men and women aren’t in danger from the sun!

can’t get burned on an overcast day!

Meanwhile, the
mission of the “Advocates” is to bring to the public differing views on current
“public policy “issues. “Public policy,” therefore, is what we as a nation
legally and traditionally follow. Over the years, the “public policy” of the United States
has changed or has been modified greatly. As an example, “free public
education” is the public policy of the United States. Also, over time great
struggles have ensued over the control of the direction of “public policy” For
example: free trade vs. protectionism, slavery vs. emancipation, state’s rights
vs. Federalism, and an all-volunteer armed forces or the “draft.”
