May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. When we think of healthy lifestyle choices, we should think about the importance of protecting our skin. Skin cancer (including melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer) is the most common of all cancers. Many skin cancers could be prevented if people protected their skin from the sun’s rays and avoided indoor tanning. The 2019 American Cancer Society sun safety campaign gives you ideas and resources for your employees to use to help lower their risk of skin cancer.
