July Is UV Safety Month

OncoLink July is UV Safety MonthSkin cancer is the number one cancer diagnosis in the United States - more common than all breast, prostate, and lung cancers combined. The majority of cases are caused by sun damage to skin cells, and therefore are largely preventable. Every year in July we recognize UV Safety month to remind people of the importance of sun safety. Get the facts about skin cancer, get sun safety tips or read the transcript from our Sun Safety Webchat!
