Pilot Program Yields Results

Results from the pilot year of the Sun Smart Schools program show that the program is effective in increasing knowledge and behaviors regarding sun safety and sunscreen use.

Additionally, we'll continue to survey students and parents, and now teachers as well, to evaluate the program and implement continual improvements.
