FSDDS Creates New Sun Defense Essay Contest Throughout Florida Elementary Schools
Date:2/12/2008

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to promote and increase sun safety and awareness, the Florida Society of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery (FSDDS) is holding an essay contest at the elementary school level across Florida. The FSDDS Florida Sun Defense Essay Contest is designed to help educate elementary school age children and parents about the importance of sun safety. It is being co-sponsored by the Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME) as a part of its on-going information literacy efforts.

These children must start now to realize that while it is great that we live in the Sunshine State, increased chances of exposure to the sun require extra precautions," said Tamarac dermatologist Dr. Glenn Zellman, current president of the Florida Society of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery (FSDDS).

Cocoa Beach dermatologist Dr. Kristin Smallwood, chair of the FSDDS Public Relations Committee and the Director of the Sun Defense Essay Contest for the FSDDS, goes further on the importance of early intervention in fighting the potential for skin cancer. "It is especially important for young children to become accustomed to protecting themselves from exposure to the sun. While many people do not realize it, the sun exposure you get when you are younger can manifest itself many years later as skin cancer. It is important that we educate young children at an early age about this fact," Smallwood said.

The FSDDS is working on this initiative in conjunction with the Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME), who has endorsed the FSDDS contest as a part of their statewide information literacy campaign. Miriam Needham, the current president of FAME and an Ocala-based media specialist, felt that this program was a natural fit for FAME. "This sun defense es
