The Sun Smart Schools team headed to Gardnerville's Scarselli Elementary in April to share the 5 S's of sun safety and tips for students on how to be Sun Smart. Students from grades K - 5 attended the assembly and learned about how the sun's UV rays can cause sunburn, and how to prevent sunburn while still enjoying the sun. The interactive assembly invited students to talk about their favorite summer activities and how they would protect their skin, including putting on sunscreen and finding shade under a tree or umbrella.

We are excited to invite your organization to partner with us on the first Skin Cancer Awareness Day at the Farm event to take place on May 21, 2016 in Minden, Nevada. This fun-filled day of live music, farmer’s market, food and booths will promote skin cancer awareness and prevention.

We are growing and need a little more desk space to accommodate NCC staff and interns! This summer, in addition to NCC's three staff we'll have an MPH intern joining us to work on Sun Smart Schools and other skin cancer prevention projects. As such, we'd like to add a standing desk to our conference room that can double as a media station for on-site meetings. If you have something that would work, or would like to purchase one for NCC, we would love the donation!
