Legislative & Regulatory Issues
CalDerm serves as the "boots on the ground" team at the state Capitol in Sacramento, monitoring all legislative and regulatory activity that impacts Dermatology and the House of Medicine. Each year, thousands of legislative bills are introduced and CalDerm has its finger on the pulse of these issues, following bills through the various committees and hearings, ensuring that Dermatology has a seat at the policy-making table.
In 2011, CalDerm and the AIM at Melanoma Foundation sponsored first-in-the-nation legislation, SB 746 (Lieu), to prohibit minors from using commercial tanning beds. We and our allies successfully moved the bill, committee by committee, house to house, and to Governor Brown's office, where in September it sat awaiting his action.
CalDerm is committed to patient safety and focused on excessive exposure to the sun and ultraviolet rays including indoor tanning beds. This section provides information on skin cancer screening clinics offered around the country and resources on how to protect your skin.
