Free Lecture at Windham Hospital Showcases “The World Skin Project” During National Skin Cancer Awareness Month
The popular Integrative Health lecture series continues on Wednesday, May 25th with a presentation by Anne Powell, LMT, and Scott Raymond, LMT, founders of The World Skin Project. The event will take place in the Hospital’s Education Center at 7 pm.Annie and Scott will conduct a dynamic, entertaining, and interactive workshop to provide vital, life-saving knowledge about skin abnormalities and the need for early detection. “This information is critical for anyone who just loves to be outdoors, works outdoors, uses a tanning booth, or knows anyone who falls into these categories,” according to Annie and Scott.
Annie Powell, President of The World Skin Project, is a Licensed Massage Therapist, living with malignant melanoma. Her mentor, Scott Raymond, also a Licensed Massage Therapist, and current President of CT Chapter AMTA, identified a skin abnormality on Annie’s back during her massage training. A physician diagnosed the abnormality as malignant melanoma. Annie and Scott went on to co-found the World Skin Project and now teach Massage Therapy students, Spa professionals, high school students and others about the dangers of skin cancer.
The World Skin Project is an international organization dedicated to reducing the occurrence of skin cancer through the promotion of education, early detection, prevention and awareness.
