Raising Sun Safety Awareness on the Friday before Memorial Day
The National Council for Skin Cancer Prevention (NCSCP) has initiated the first annual Don't Fry Day to educate the public about sun protection and skin cancer prevention. This event will take place on the Friday before Memorial Day. Memorial Day is the unofficial first day of summer for most Americans and a great day to reinforce sun safety messages.
The Dermatology Nurses' Association, in partnership with other NCSCP members, has created a Don't Fry Day handout for use by its members. Please download PDF copies of the Don't Fry Day handout to distribute to your patients. We hope to have DNA members around the country educating patients and the public about skin cancer prevention on Don't Fry Day.
The NCSCP has prepared additional documents including a campaign plan, draft press release, and background fact sheet. These documents are available at www.skincancerprevention.org.
