Here are some very helpful sites to learn more about sun protection. You will find the website links on top (which may work best if you are using a smartphone), and the embedded website below, which works better if you are using a larger screen on an laptop or desktop computer

The next link from the Melanoma Research Alliance focuses on the deadliest of all skin cancer, MELANOMA, and is an excellent website detailing everything you need to know about melanoma!

This link to The Society for Pediatric Dermatology has a variety of pamphlets, including the one below about the importance on sun protection:
