Shade plays an important role in preventing skin cancer. To help protect children from the sun’s harmful rays, the Academy offers grants for shade structures. Non-profit organizations and public schools that serve children between the ages of 4 and 18 are eligible to apply for this grant.
You can learn more about the grant program and download an application by going to Shade Structure Grant Program.
Camp Discovery dates announced
Camp Discovery offers kids living with long-term skin conditions the chance to connect with other young people who face similar challenges. In this environment, they can just relax and enjoy summer camp experiences like swimming and boating.
While having fun, the campers are under the expert care of dermatologists and nurses. There is no fee to attend this camp.
You’ll find the dates for these summer camps at 2013 camp schedule.
Let SPOT help you keep your 2013 resolutions
If your New Year’s resolution is to be more active or contribute to a great cause, the Academy has got you covered.
When you hit the gym this New Year, why not sport a SPOT Skin Cancer® t-shirt and hydrate with a BPA-free SPOT water bottle? When you buy these SPOT products, you help raise awareness about skin cancer. This, in turn, helps to improve the health of others.
The net proceeds from sales of these products benefit the Academy’s SPOT Skin Cancer® initiative, which educates people about skin cancer and motivates individuals to make positive lifestyle changes that can prevent and detect skin cancer.
SPOT products are available at the AAD store.
