Skin Cancer Awareness

Spread Skin Cancer Awareness this May

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, which means it’s the perfect time to educate your patients and community about the importance of skin cancer prevention and detection.

In conjunction with Melanoma Monday® on May 2, the Academy is asking the public to make sure their skin is “Looking Good in 2016” by making a habit of using sun protection and performing regular skin self-exams.

We encourage you to get involved in this year’s SPOT Skin Cancer™ campaign by sharing the following resources with your local media, on your practice website and via social media.
