Just as we did with our brain-research month this past April, for the next several weeks, the Penn One Health communications group will be featuring research stories related to summer.

Our first installment is about melanoma, the summer sun, and the importance of self-exams. We’ll also share a piece about how to calm dogs anxious about fireworks and thunder, one about why ice cream causes “brain freeze,” and another on how hot weather affects crime.   

Keep track of the news here, use the hashtag #pennonehealth to share it, and let us know what you think at onehealth@upenn.edu. Thanks for reading!
