Entertainment Industries Council’s Center for Skin Cancer Prevention Encourages Skin-Safe Practices During Sun Safety Week
Date:6/5/2013

Reston, VA (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

The mercury is beginning to rise across the nation, signaling the long-awaited start of summer. Pools, amusement parks, golf courses and beaches will soon become havens for sun exposure, increasing pubic risk of potential life-long dangers including skin cancer. The Center for Skin Cancer Prevention of the Entertainment Industries Council’s Entertainment & Media Communication Institute is sponsoring National Sun Safety Week through this Saturday, June 8th. The week is designed to encourage people to take control of their health by protecting skin and eyes.

“The Center for Skin Cancer Prevention, formerly known as the Sun Safety Alliance, provides detailed sun safety resources, activities and information for all ages, demographics, and outdoor enthusiasts. While sun safety should be practiced 12 months a year, we spotlight the summer months when outdoor sports and the desire to tan elevate the dangers of skin cancer for young people. Our goal is to inform every person, through the power of mass media, of the dangers of excessive sun exposure,” said Brian Dyak, President and CEO, Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC).

This week represents eight years since Congress first recognized the importance of sun safety and the need for school-based sun safety education programs. In a resolution by the 109th Congress, all Americans were encouraged to protect themselves and their children from the dangers of excessive sun exposure and to support the goals and ideas of National Sun Safety Week.

Suggestions for being Sun Safe:

  • Just one blistering sunburn can double a child’s risk of developing skin cancer later in life, so make sure to protect your children’s skin and teach them healthy habits
