Pittsburgh Quarterly Magazine “More Than Skin Deep” Article (Summer 2013)

Jessica Vega-Rogowicz of Miles Against Melanoma PA was featured in the Summer 2013 issue of Pittsburgh Quarterly Magazine.  The article discusses the dangers of tanning, sunburns, and how melanoma is much more common than most people think.  Dr. Howard Edington and Dr. John Kirkwood, both of Pittsburgh, are featured in the article as experts in the field of skin cancer.  Jessica Vega-Rogowicz discusses her experience with tanning, sunburns, and how she came to learn that she developed the most deadly form of skin cancer.
