Newswise — Triple appointed in Dermatology, Pathology, and Public Health Sciences, Dr. Steve Feldman directs the Center for Dermatology Research, a health services research center whose mission is to improve the care of patients with skin disease. Dr. Feldman is a frequent speaker to lay groups, physicians, industry professionals, and managed care executives, and has published over 200 articles in books and peer-reviewed journals. He is editor or a member of the editorial board of five dermatology journals. He is listed in Best Doctors in America.
In 2004, Feldman conducted research that proved people become addicted to UV light which isn't altogether surprising, since they've also been found to improve one's mood and sense of calm. A by-product of the chemical reaction that occurs when UV rays irradiate skin cells is the pleasurable release of endorphins in the brain, Feldman explains.
