Lisa Patulny, the former editor for beauty and wellness website, is out guest today. Late 2018, Lisa ventured into blowing the whistle on melanoma mythology with a campaign titled #calltimeonmelanoma Now, a nation wide movement, #calltimeonmalanoma is A not-for-profit initiative for (sun) smart women, providing education and instagrammable content to take sun care seriously.
