Chicago, IL, United States, 2006/03/21 - Leading Chicago dermatologist Dr. Omeed Memar, MD, PHD, Medical Director, Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute, joins Chicago's largest online LGBT online resource, ChicagoPride.com.
"I am very excited about my online collaboration with ChicagoPride," Memar said. "In the coming months I will explore all sorts of ways to attain good skin care and help prevent aging."
Memar's online column for March, "You Are What You Eat", discusses foods that can help improve your skin, among them include pomegranates, blueberries, kale, spinach, and, green tea.
"We so glad to have Dr. Memar’s voice online," says Matthew Inawat, president, ChicagoPride.com. "Cosmetic surgery and improvements are all the rage," he continued, "so we're glad to have someone in our community who can talk openly about the good, the bad and the ugly."
When researching and developing ideas for a monthly column, Memar knew that he also wanted to find a way to make it interactive. "I understand that people get intimidated about cosmetic improvements and procedures," he explained. Online readers can submit questions for Memar to answer; and future plans include a companion blog to the online column.
