As the summer months approach and we want to maximize our time outside, it is important to remember sun safety tips. We spend so much of these months at festivals, the lake, up north, etc. But, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 5 million people will receive treatment for skin cancer each year. In addition, it is important to educate yourself about skin cancer health disparities.
What ethnicity is most affected?
- 1 in 38 White people
- 1 in 167 Hispanic people
- 1 in 1,000 Black people
While screening and early detection are key for skin cancer, it is also equally important to focus on prevention. Please view these summer safety tips and share with your employees as we kick off our enjoyable summer!
