An Important Message Regarding Tanning Beds

We are advocates for melanoma prevention and education. Please click here to read evidence that supports these statistics.
Our mission is to increase awareness for melanoma prevention, provide information and services on skin cancer detection, and support melanoma patients through education of the latest treatments.

Do I frequently work or play in the sun between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM without wearing protective clothing?
No Upcoming Events
May is Melanoma Awareness Month
Prevent Your Risk:
*Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or more sunscreen. Apply frequently and liberally. Don’t forget UV radiation causes sun damage in winter and cloudy days too.
*Wear protective clothing, hat and sunglasses.
*Seek shade, avoid mid-day sun.
*Never, never use tanning beds. Melanoma is the number one cancer diagnosed in young adults (25-29). This is attributed to tanning bed use.
*Protect your children. Just one blistering sunburn in childhood or adolescence doubles their risk of developing melanoma later.
