Sun Heroes 2017

Over-exposure to the sun during childhood can affect the risk of melanoma later in life.1 When parents, teachers and other role models use sun protection such as hats, shade, sunscreen and clothing, children are more likely to use these sun protection methods too. Therefore it's vital to establish good sun protection habits early on in life.

Schools have a responsibility to ensure that children are protected from the harmful UV rays during the school day... Did you know that sun exposure in the first 15 years of life contributes significantly to the lifetime risk of skin cancer.2 Deb is working in partnership with Skcin to provide all the information and resource materials you need to make your school sun safe this summer.
