Will Australia’s tanning culture ever change?

Tanning represents your skin cells in trauma. That’s the message this year’s joint Australian of the Year, Professor Georgina Long, wants you to know. She’s a cancer doctor and was part of a medical breakthrough that transformed the way we treat melanoma. In today’s deep dive, we chat to the Prof Long about her work in the melanoma field, as well as how her medical breakthrough is now being used to treat her best friend and co-Australian of the Year recipient, Professor Richard Scolyer.
