Choose Your Cover: Skin Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Toolkit


This toolkit can help organizers develop a Choose Your Cover skin cancer awareness, education, and free screening program in their community. This program brings free skin cancer screenings; complimentary sunscreen; and a wealth of vital skin safety information, involving cancer detection, prevention, and sun smart precautions, directly to the at-risk population of people who spend extended time in the sun—at the beach, ballpark, and other outdoor venues.

The toolkit includes the following:

  • Facts about skin cancer
  • Choose Your Cover quick guide
  • Skin cancer examination protocols
  • Checklist for sites
  • Sample budget
  • Budget template
  • Proclamation request letter
  • Participant followup letter
