Tools to promote protection from harmful UV rays and reduce skin cancer risk
Skin cancer prevention guidelines recommend multiple behaviors to protect against harmful ultraviolet rays, yet few adults sufficiently protect themselves from sun exposure. The purpose of this study was to identify common beliefs among white adults regarding sun protection behaviors, and to create and test effective messages based on those findings.
This toolkit contains messages that can be utilized by public health professionals to encourage sun protection behaviors. Messages are available in three formats: 30-second video PSAs, 30-second radio PSAs, and posters.
This toolkit provides strategies you can use when sharing messages. Share them with your audience to educate and encourage them to adopt sun protection behaviors.
