To support the Your Skin is In program in Southern and Midcoast Maine. Melanoma is the second largest cancer diagnosis in young people 15-29. Therefore, the purpose of the program is to build awareness about the dangers of tanning, both outdoors and in tanning beds, for high school students. This program will provide education at high schools in Cumberland County and the Midcoast region and a Teens on Tanning Forum with representation from schools in these areas. The Forum will teach kids about sharing the UV protection message in their communities through grass roots efforts.
