Skin Cancer Education in Aroostook County

This grant is aimed at expanding cancer awareness efforts in the communities that Vital Pathways serves, including a large portion of Southern Aroostook County. This awareness will be raised through educational campaigns in schools and in the community, focusing mainly on skin cancer. There will be informational sessions for local businesses, farmers, loggers, and laborers. Vital Pathways plans to use The Melanoma Education Foundation's 'Skin Check' program as the center of their outreach program. Through this programing, Vital Pathways hopes to increase awareness in these communities of the dangers of skin cancer, and methods through which one can prevent its occurrence.
