DPH Partnering with State Parks and YMCA to Remind Delawareans to ‘Protect Your Skin’

Division of Public Health | News | Date Posted: Wednesday, May 31, 2017

The days are heating up as we approach the official start of summer. While most people are focused on getting outdoors to be more active, enjoy sports like baseball and fishing, and appreciate the warmth, the Division of Public Health (DPH) is reminding everyone to be mindful of the sun’s harmful rays. Overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) rays can lead to skin cancer. Delaware ranks third nationally for skin cancer diagnosis. Building on ongoing awareness efforts, the 2017 Division of Public Health’s #ProtectYourSkinDE skin cancer prevention campaign is under way to educate Delawareans, especially children, teens and young adults about skin cancer prevention.
