Caring For Your Skin With Dr. Anuja Sharma

Dr Anuja Sharma

Learn more about how to care for your skin with Dr. Anuja Sharma at the next Northumberland PACE community conversation, May 15th.

The next Northumberland PACE conversation will take place at Northumberland Hills Hospital (NHH) on Wednesday, May 15th with Dr. Anuja Sharma leading the discussion on the topic of skin care.*  

An internal medicine specialist with the IM Care internal medicine team at NHH, Dr. Sharma has been in clinical practice since 1996. Her clinical interests include diseases of the skin, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis and arthritis.
“Skin is the largest and the most visible organ of the body. It protects us from the elements, allows us to sense touch, pain, pressure, acts as a temperature regulator of the body and also nourishes us by making vitamin D,” explains Dr. Sharma. “It has great ability to heal itself and when touched in a gentle way it even lowers the stress hormones.”

Dr. Sharma’s talk will explore how the ways we take care of our skin make it more resilient or more prone to disease and skin cancer, exploring questions like: What are some of the simple day to day things that we can do to make our skin healthier? How do we choose from the various skin care products available to us? What are some things to avoid? What are some of the signs and symptoms of skin cancer for early detection and cure?

Lasting approximately one hour in length, PACE events consist of a 30-minute talk, a 20-minute question-and-answer period with the guest speaker and a 10-minute moderator summary.

The last in the 2018/19 series, Dr. Sharma’s conversation will begin at 5:30 PM on May 15th in the 2nd floor Community Education Centre at Northumberland Hills Hospital, 1000 DePalma Drive.
