This week: Sunscreen, migraine headaches, and burnout

The continual reapplication of sunscreen is key to its effectiveness in protecting you from skin cancer, dermatologist Ramsay Farah explains in this "HealthLink on Air" episode. He's the chief of dermatology at Upstate Medical University.

Farah says sunscreen is important for everyone, no matter how dark their complexion. He also addresses concern about the chemicals that may be contained in sunscreens. He advises his patients to seek products with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, substances that are inert but effective in blocking the sun's rays.

Also this week, neurologist Rosamma Joseph provides an overview of headache diagnosis and treatments. And, psychologist Holly Vanderhoff describes how to recognize, avoid and treat workplace burnout. More Sunday, July 7 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on WRVO.
