Insight into why young women indoor tan and tools to help them quit.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Indoor tanning significantly increases the risk of skin cancer and is prevalent among young women. The purpose of this study was to identify the most common beliefs of young, white women regarding indoor tanning, and to create and test effective messages based on those findings.

This toolkit contains the themes and messages used in the Skin Cancer Communication Project (SCCP). These messages can be utilized by public health professionals to discourage the use of indoor tanning. 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. You can also head to our website for links to all of the videos, PSAs, posters and social media messages. Share them with your audience to educate and encourage them to quit indoor tanning.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=”middle” css=”.vc_custom_1575570151958{background-color: #e2dce2 !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”2776″ img_size=”240×300″ alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.upennprc.org/assets/SCCP_Indoor_Be-good-to-yourself.pdf”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2797″ img_size=”450×108″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.upennprc.org/assets/SCCP-Dissemination-Guide_Indoor_pg5.pdf”][vc_column_text]This message focuses on the negative physical appearance associated with indoor tanning, like wrinkles and an orange skin tone.
