SunWise Skin Cancer Prevention Program

School Program


August 2014's Educator Survey winner is Deborah West, RN, Copper Canyon Elementary, Scottsdale.

What is the SunWise™ Skin Cancer Prevention School Program?

The SunWise Skin Cancer Prevention School Program provides free curriculum, school assemblies, staff training and resources to reduce skin cancer. The curriculum features 48 easy-to-use sun safety cards with educational activities that incorporate math, science, health, social studies, language arts, and critical thinking. These fun-filled activities average 20 minutes in length and are divided into three student-age groups: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Minimal time is required to implement a SunWise School Program, while the lasting effects of UV protection and reduced skin cancer deaths in Arizona are immeasurable.

Note: Sun safety experience is not necessary for an educator to successfully and confidently share the SunWise Program with students.
