Educational Materials & Resources


  • Skin Cancer Prevention Toolkit For Institutions of Higher Education   New!

    The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Melanoma Moon Shot Program and Cancer Prevention and Control Platform seek to develop and implement community-based efforts related to the prevention and early detection of skin cancer, specifically melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. These two teams collaborated to develop the Skin Cancer Prevention Toolkit For Institutions of Higher Education. The toolkit is designed to assist college and university leaders in adopting, implementing and enforcing skin cancer prevention campus policies and practices.

    The tools and materials provided in this toolkit support and explain the benefits and rationale for a 100% Indoor Tanning-Free Campus Policy, a Sun Protection Campus Policy, and skin cancer prevention education and health services activities. This toolkit also provides resources and tips on drafting, enforcing, communicating and evaluating policy.
