With year-round sunshine in Arizona, it’s important to make informed decisions to reduce the risks of overexposure and sunburns. Practicing good sun safety is important at any age, but it is critically important for children since about a quarter of a person’s lifetime exposure to the sun occurs before age 18. The SunWise video provides a general overview of sun safety and skin cancer prevention tips for children and adults alike. It can be used by teachers and coaches to supplement classroom lessons or provide brief safety training in a workplace setting.
The SunWise program participates in community outreach events, health fairs, workplace presentations and school assemblies where students and attendees can interact with SunWise educators and have their questions answered directly. School teachers, educators and wellness coordinators interested in having the SunWise program participate at a school assembly, or a community event may contact the program directly at [email protected] .
