SKIN Open Day

To promote awareness of Melanoma, SKIN teamed up with Melanoma NZ for the opening of the Tauranga Specialist Centre. Minister Simon Bridges raised a toast to the building, and was accompanied by the Mayor Greg Brownless and the Deputy Mayor Kelvin Clout. We discussed that while we are fortunate to have highly qualified specialists in skin cancer in the Bay of Plenty, there is a need to push for an improvement in our Melanoma rates by improving compulsory hat policies in schools and banning sun beds.

We also showcased the building's eco friendly design, with its extensive array of solar panels, solar power emergency back up supply and car charging capabilities.
