Sunlight and Our Skin with Professor Brian Diffey

Sunlight and our Skin
The Sun is responsible for the development and continued existence of life on Earth. We are warmed by its infrared rays and visible light is the source of our food. It’s the ultraviolet rays that cause both beneficial and harmful changes in the skin and this talk will look at some of these effects - sunburn, ageing, skin cancer and vitamin D production.
 
This event is free but please buy a drink to keep it so.
