Sunburn

Skin Cancer Foundation

This nonprofit, public foundation is concerned with increasing public awareness of the sun's harmful rays and stresses the importance of preventive measures against the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. The Foundation encourages people to recognize skin cancer early, when detection and prompt treatment hold the best chance for effective management and survival. The Foundation conducts public and medical education programs and provides support for medical research on skin cancer. Under the Foundation's aegis, skin cancer authorities from here and abroad recurrently meet in a World Congress on Cancers of the Skin to exchange views and present findings from their clinical studies and basic research into the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of skin cancer.
