RICHARDSON, Texas & PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Stephens & Associates, Inc. is a clinical investigative site and contract research organization (CRO) dedicated to providing the highest quality study design, data evaluation and report preparation for its global industry sponsors. Sponsors include dermatology, cosmetic, medical device and personal care companies. Leaders from the Phoenix facility along with board certified dermatologist, Karin D. Machnau, MD, will be participating in the Arizona Women’s Expo on April 28 and 29 at the Convention Center. Stephens will be at Booth 1105 with Dr. Machnau offering free skin cancer screenings.

“Stephens is proud to participate at the Women’s Expo with Dr. Machnau, helping give back to our community, and showing a diverse group of women how overall skin health, not only anti-aging, is important,” expresses Lawrence A. Rheins, Ph.D., Senior Director of the Phoenix site. “With more than 29,000 women expected to attend, Stephens invites anyone interested to stop by Booth 1105 to meet us and receive a free skin screening.”

Dr. Machnau is a Board Certified Dermatologist with more than 20 years in practice. “Healthy skin is truly important. Your skin not only divulges your age but also reveals your lifestyle, including bad habits like smoking and sun exposure without UV protection,” adds Dr. Machnau. “As the largest organ of the body, the skin protects it from outside invaders, germs and free radicals, regulates body temperature, and even works to maintain the immune system. The skin is critical to overall health. I look forward to being at the expo, supporting the health and beauty goals of women at every age.”

Thomas J. Stephens, Ph.D., president and founder, comments, “We are committed to the greater Phoenix community and invite attendees to come to Booth 1105 and meet Dr. Machnau. Our team of professionals has lots of sunscreen samples to share with visitors.”

Arizona’s Ultimate Women’s Expo will have over 550 booths with the very best brands of products and services designed for women, their families and their households, including fashion, beauty, health, and fitness. In addition, the Expo hosts exciting speakers and promotes education aimed at resolving issues faced by many active, involved women, helping provide solutions for a balanced lifestyle. The Women’s Expo is taking place at the Phoenix Convention Center, South Building, 33 South Third Street, Phoenix, Arizona.
