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 .
Sun Safety Facts:
- UV intensity peaks in June making May a month with greater risk of sunburn than August.
- The recommended adult dose for sunscreen is one ounce per application to cover the entire body surface. Most people apply only 25% of the recommended dose of sunscreen and never reapply. This effectively reduces sun protection by 75 to 100%.
- 80% of children report summer sunburns. It is important to educate our pediatric and adult patients about proper sun protection.
- Sun protection clothing including hats and long sleeve shirts may protect better than sunscreen.
- Always wear sunglasses to protect the eye from UV damage.
