Skin cancer prevention progress report 2017
  • Description:
    In July 2014, the Office of the Surgeon General released The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer, establishing skin cancer prevention as a high priority for our nation.1 The Call to Action described prevention strategies that work and called on all community sectors to play a role in protecting Americans from ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and artificial sources, such as indoor tanning devices. Since the release of The Call to Action, a growing community of partners at the national, state, and local levels has taken great strides toward meeting its strategic goals and advancing skin cancer prevention in the United States. This third annual Skin Cancer Prevention Progress Report provides a comprehensive summary of the most recent data available and highlights developments and success stories following The Call to Action and since the release of the report annually, we can monitor progress, celebrate and learn from successes, recognize areas that need improvement, and identify opportunities to work with partners in government, health care, education, business, and the community.
