Maryland Legislation Introduced to Prohibit Indoor Tanning for Minors
Date:3/10/2010

"The American Academy of Dermatology Association applauds the Maryland House of Representatives and Maryland Senate for introducing legislation to protect its young people from the dangers associated with indoor tanning," said dermatologist William D. James, MD, FAAD, president of the American Academy of Dermatology Association. "Indoor tanning before the age of 35 has been associated with a 75 percent increase in the risk of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. This legislation has the potential to save lives if it becomes law," Dr. James said.

The American Academy of Dermatology (Academy), founded in 1938, is the largest, most influential, and most representative of all dermatologic associations with a membership of more than 16,000 physicians worldwide. A sister organization to the Academy, the American Academy of Dermatology Association is the resource for government affairs, health policy and practice information for dermatologists, and plays a major role in formulating policies that can enhance the quality of dermatologic care.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
