Skin Safety Education Opportunities
The National Skin Education Foundation's (FSDDS Foundation) purposes are to foster, provide and promote educational programs and materials on dermatological and dermatological surgery issues.
The NSEF aims to distribute sun safety education and materials to elementary school children in order to teach safe outdoor behavior and dangers of over-exposure to the sun.
We need YOU as a physician/parent/care giver to help us locate interested educators! Send us your child's educator's (teachers, camp counselors, physical education teachers) contact information to: SunSafetyEducation@FSDDS.ORG
Participating educators may receive hats, UV bracelets, and/or sunscreen samples along with a short curriculum about sun safety.
