Practice Safe Skin
Awareness, education and access to sunscreen is included in Practice Safe Skin, our comprehensive sunscreen dispenser program.
Community partners such as parks & recreation along with corporate sponsors can reach large audiences at beaches, parks, and in urban areas.
Practice Safe Skin is further extended to outdoor workers with prevention education programs
IS YOUR COMMUNITY READY?
IMPACT Melanoma introduced its Practice Safe Skin program as a response to the U.S. Surgeon General Boris D. Lushniak’s call to action for a nationwide effort to prevent skin cancer. Since then, IMPACT Melanoma has worked with businesses, individuals and government agencies to bring comprehensive sun protection programs to communities and has installed over 7,000 sunscreen dispensers in a variety of settings. Our accomplishments even caught the attention of NBC Nightly News and Marge Simpson (see below). Forward-thinking cities, citizens, non-profit organizations, and businesses of all shapes and sizes can make a positive impact on the health of their community by installing convenient and attractive sunscreen dispensers in high-traffic areas and outdoor spaces.

How Your Community Benefits
Along with the acquisition and implementation of our sunscreen dispenser units, Practice Safe Skin works with you to educate your entire community about the benefits of having sunscreen readily available to community members. IMPACT Melanoma believes that not only should sunscreen be equally accessible to everyone, the importance of creating the understanding and knowledge on how to protect your skin is equally necessary.
IMPACT Melanoma has done a lot of work in terms of collaborating with and educating communities about the importance of sun safety in areas around the country – from healthcare facilities such as hospitals and doctors offices to slightly more “unconventional” spots from car dealerships to shopping complexes. The point is, there is no bad spot for a sunscreen dispenser. Wherever they exist they demand attention and draw utilization. If you are a healthcare facility, it makes perfect sense to add a dispenser or dispensers to your grounds. Not only are they utilized by patients, but your employees will take advantage of them as well. Further, if you’re a commercial/corporate decision maker, think about the positive PR you’ll receive in the vein of being a solid humanitarian. That’s a win-win. Sponsoring the installation of sunscreen dispensers throughout your community is a positive IMPACT from multiple vantage points.
