You Missed a Spot
YOU MISSED A SPOT
You Missed a Spot initiative aims to equip individuals with education and proactive protocols to help stay sun safe throughout the summer and beyond. Held in two major Canadian cities during May is Melanoma Month, participants had a UV image taken of their skin to demonstrate the way the sun’s ultraviolet rays have impacted them and juxtapose it against the powerful protection that sunscreen provides. Participants had an opportunity to have their skin scanned and connect on-site with a dermatologist/oncologist who communicated the importance of sun safety in an effort to help reduce the instances of melanoma nationally. Additionally, survivors were on-site to communicate the necessity of self-detection and proactive measures Canadians can take themselves.
