Our programs make an IMPACT and we can track and report the IMPACT they make.
Increase Early Detection
An Overview of Our Programs
Practice Safe Skin: awareness, education and access to sunscreen is included in 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. Learn more
IMPACT Shade: shade is important to our health and can protect us from cancer causing UV rays. IMPACT Shade offers corporate sponsors and community leaders the opportunity to provide portable shade in communities, particularly in urban areas. As part of IMPACT Shade, we seek to partner with architects, urban planners and community leaders to incorporate shade into urban development projects. Learn more

I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma the summer before my senior year of high school. At the time I had no idea what melanoma was. My mom noticed an irregular mole on my back while, ironically, applying sunscreen.
