As Summer Begins, National Organization Helps Highlight Dangers of UV Overexposure

Don't Fry Day logo

On Friday, May 28, the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention sponsored the second annual “Don’t Fry Day,” a nationwide event held in advance of the Memorial Day weekend to encourage sun safety awareness and to remind people to protect their skin while enjoying the outdoors. 

NCI is an advisory member of the Council, which is dedicated to reducing skin cancer morbidity and mortality in the United States by minimizing exposure to intense ultraviolet radiation.

To learn more about skin cancer prevention and other related research, please visit NCI’s Skin Cancer home page.
