One blistering sunburn in childhood or adolescence more than doubles a person’s chances of developing melanoma later in life. Therefore, educating youth, and those who influence youth, is vital in raising awareness about staying safe in the sun.
We encourage you to take the online Enright Sun Safety Certification™ programs, for ages 5 and over, designed by skin cancer professionals from the Enright Melanoma Foundation. These programs are available FREE to the public at www.ApplyCoverEnjoy.org.
The courses are taught through an advanced e-learning platform with engaging visuals, a healthy dose of creativity, proven instructional methods, and a highly interactive user experience. All of which makes learning about sun safety FUN and EASY. The Enright Sun Safety ACE™ guides the learners through each topic, with an easy acronym for children to remember: Apply Cover Enjoy.
Melanoma is almost always curable when it’s found in its earliest stages. You can make a difference. It’s our responsibility to educate others about how to make healthy choices regarding sun safety. Join us today and help spread the word!
