USD Sanford Medical Student Recognized by US Public Health Service
Bahnson’s project, titled “Skin Cancer Education in the Rural Salon”, was approved by the University of South Dakota Institutional Review Board. Its ultimate aim is to educate cosmetologists in rural South Dakota about skin cancer lesions.
Bahnson herself has conducted trainings with eight cosmetologists in five rural cosmetology salons, and her overall goal is to train 40 cosmetologists who practice in rural locations. According to Bahnson, cosmetologists are uniquely positioned to identify suspicious skin lesions and can encourage their customers to see their physicians for evaluation.
Bahnson is a graduate of West Central High School in Hartford, South Dakota and Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
