"Tan-Free Campus" Initiative Needs Your Help!

The Acting Surgeon General, Boris Lushniak, MD, recently declared a Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer. Following this and a recent study published in JAMA Dermatology regarding indoor tanning availability on college campuses, the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention, along with their member groups, including Melanoma Research Foundation, CDC, EPA, the Skin Cancer Foundation, and many more activist groups, is starting a “Tan-Free Campus” initiative in order to promote health and prevent skin cancer, particularly targeting college campuses. We are searching for those members also passionate about skin cancer prevention and decreasing the prevalence of indoor tanning.

Our mission is to enhance knowledge of the dangers of UV radiation from the sun and indoor tanning beds and decrease the amount of indoor tanning bed use among young adults through active awareness campaigns.

Please e-mail Sarah at Sarah.Malerich@SkinCancerPrevention.org if you are interested in getting involved or have any questions.
