Dr. Stephanie Klein is an assistant clinical professor at the University of Utah Department of Dermatology. In this role, she teaches medical students and residents at the Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center.
She is the founder and director of SunSafe Utah, a program she designed together with Dr. Sancy Leachman. Through SunSafe Utah, dermatologists and medical students go into local schools to teach children and teachers ways to decrease their risk of developing melanoma. Since 2009, Dr. Klein has worked with many medical students to implement SunSafe Utah and measure it’s success scientifically.
In 2012, Dr. Klein brought the first SunWise with SHADE Poster Contest to Utah. As a result, over 1500 elementary and middle school students made posters illustrating the principles of sun protection. Finalists attended an awards’ ceremony at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, where they met local supporters of melanoma education.
Dr. Klein has become a regional expert in the treatment of hyperhidrosis. She often lectures about this topic to medical groups.
