Members of the Dermatology Nurses' Association participate annually in "Don't Fry Day."
The National Council for Skin Cancer Prevention (NCSCP) initiated Don't Fry Day in 2009 to educate the public about sun protection and skin cancer prevention. This event takes place annually on the Friday before Memorial Day. Memorial Day -- 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 to educate patients and the public about skin cancer prevention on Don't Fry Day. Visit the NCSCP website for more information on Don't Fry Day and Don't Fry Day Resources and Materials.
