30-CH Sunday, Oct 5, 1986 The Philadelphia Inquirer K3 NEIGHBORS IN THE NEWS Health series planned by Voorhees resident r Kathleen Cannizzaro of Voorhees was the coordinator for Women's Health Week, held last week at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. As coordinator, Cannizzaro, 30, a co-founder of the three-year-old program, planned the series of seminars, which were led by Jefferson medical authorities. "Women's Health Week is designed to offer working women of the Delaware Valley an informational forum dealing with practical topics facing women today," said Cannizzaro, coordinator for Jefferson's hospital education services. She said she became involved in the program because of her interest in women's health care. She urged all women to take a more active part in their own health care by questioning their physicians and learning as much as they can about their health. "The purpose of Women's Health Week," she said, "is to make women become better healthcare consumers." One of the seminars, titled "Facing the Mirror," was given by Dr. David High, who practices dermatology from his Medford office. In the seminar, High warned women not to fall victim to advertising that portrays tanning as terrific and beautiful. "Cultural values have always influenced our concept of beauty," he said. "Today, a deep tan is considered a sign of beauty and leisure. The reality is that skin cancer and wrinkling are the tradeoffs for today's tan. "Good sun habits are easy to practice without sacrificing enjoyment of the outdoors," he said. High, 31, also said women should be alert to the possible harmful effects that cosmetics may have on their skin. Such products are not considered drugs, and, therefore, tend not to be as carefully controlled by the Food and Drug Administration, he said. "The skin is a unique organ because it is visible and lends itself easily to examination," he said. "Everyone should learn to examine his or her body and to recognize common skin problems." Jazz singer Suzanne Cloud of Collingswood recently released her first album, I Like It, which is also the name of the title cut. Cloud said the album has been doing well since its release in August. Six local radio stations have been giving air time to the title song, she said. Encounter Audiophile Records of Philadelphia, the album's producer, plans to distribute it nationally and internationally in about four months, she said. Backing her up on the album are Philadelphia jazz musicians Eddie Green, Tyrone Brown and Jim Miller. Cloud, a former nurse, began her vocal career as the lead singer in the senior class musical at Pennsauken High School. She said she performed show songs until three years ago. "I got a chance to see jazz artist Sarah Vaughn," Cloud said. "It really freaked me out. I love jazz, so I decided to sing it. "It's an improvisational form, so you have to really understand music," she said. "With jazz, you have to get kind of in and out of chords." She's been singing jazz ever since. She said she had appeared at nightspots in major Philadelphia hotels as well as such nightclubs as All That Jazz, Not Quite Crickett and Rick's Cabaret. She is now performing on Friday and Saturday nights at Jimmy's on Front. Cloud is married to Nelson Tapper, a real estate appraiser with an office in Cherry Hill, and has three sons. She said juggling her time between raising a family and pursuing her career could be difficult. But she added, "My husband was a bass player and understands the music business." Cloud's album is available at the Third Street Jazz and Sound of Market record shops in Philadelphia and at tori's Records on Haddon Avenue in Camden. s's-z s, , it -iu l;iii0i 3 ' U C iwu.' : Ip - " Kathleen Cannizzaro displays health week schedule.
