Hello- The Skin Cancer Foundation wants to know if middle school students are getting the reminder about sun safety and skin cancer prevention before they head off campus. If you have any formal/informal lessons around this important issue we would love to hear about them! There is currently a special section of the SCF website geared to middle schoolers http://www.skincancer.org/school/ and there will be a launch of a whole new teacher website in August with all new content and lesson plans. Students could navigate the site themselves and take a quiz to learn their Fitzpatrick skin type and related risks with sun exposure. Athletes like gold medalist Lindsay Tarpley and surfer MIck Fanning are featured. Any feedback and suggestions are welcome, please feel free to contact me directly at phoward@skincancer.org, post to the SCF Facebook wall http://www.facebook.com/skincancerfoundation, or tweet us at @SkinCancerOrg. Many thanks, best wishes for a healthy, sun-safe summer!
