  • Description:
    Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. People can lower their risk of getting skin cancer by getting less sun exposure, protecting themselves while in the sun, and avoiding

    indoor tanning. This brochure is designed to help public health program planners, community advocates, educators, and policymakers find proven intervention strategies—including programs, services, and policies—to prevent skin cancer. It can help decision makers in both public and private sectors make choices about what intervention strategies are best for their communities.

    This brochure summarizes information in The Guide to Community Preventive Services (The Community Guide), an essential resource for people who want to know what works in public health. Use the information in this brochure to help select intervention strategies you can adapt for your community to:

    • Reduce sun exposure, especially during peak hours

    • Improve knowledge and attitudes about sun protection among children and adults

    • Change policies and create sun-safe environments
