Get ready for summer

27 Sep 2011

Summer brings fun in the sun at Docklands.

But it also brings hazards, such as skin cancer, and a renewed focus on the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

As the layers of clothes come off, says the Docklands’ Travel Doctor Plus clinic, people discover changes in moles or skin lesions.

“It is important to complete a skin cancer check before summer,” the clinic said.

“In Victoria, average UV levels are 3 (when UV starts to do damage) and above, from September until the end of April.”

The Travel Doctor Plus has a GP who has been trained in skin cancer.

A healthy body leads to a healthy mind, according to YMCA Docklands.

To help Docklanders get in shape for summer, the YMCA is not charging a start-up fee on memberships until October 24.

“Research has shown regular exercise is a way to improve mental health, lose weight, reduce stress and to prevent and manage chronic health conditions,” centre manager Andrew Ward said.

For more, call 8621 8300 or go to http://www.docklands.ymca.org.au.  For information on skin cancer, call Travel Doctor Plus on 8622 6333 or go to Level 4, 700 Collins St.

“Members also have the opportunity to give to others who are less ‘strong’ than themselves through YMCA Open Doors.”

“We work hard to fund-raise for YMCA Open Doors within our local community to ensure our local people doing it tough can access our centre.”
