Team SunSmart Program -
Event: The Beauty of Prevention with Bobbi Brown and Marisa Marchetto
Date: February 4, 2010
Location: The Bobbi Brown Studio, Montclair NJ
Description: Skin Cancer Education and Awareness Event empowering women to take control of their own health.
Recap: What was designed as an evening of enlightenment for women turned into a lively sorority party for girls of all ages. Many mothers took the opportunity to spend time with their daughters and enjoyed a make-up session with artists from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Later, Bobbi herself explained the importance of a healthy lifestyle as the underpinning of any beauty regimen and Marisa Acocella Marchetto, aka the Cancer Vixen, led a discussion on the importance of preventing skin cancer by making the application of sunscreen a part of your everyday routine. Together these women provoked an insightful conversation that included very specific questions directed at our Medical Director, Dr. Danny Groisser of The Dermatology Group. All those who attended left empowered with knowledge to live a happy, healthy and beautiful life.
