DSM to host Safer Under the Sun Day
Royal DSM is to host a skin cancer prevention and education awareness event in Washington, DC on 19 May.
Safer Under the Sun Day will commemorate its 2022 sponsorship Destination Healthy Skin, The Skin Cancer Foundation’s mobile skin cancer education and screening programme.
The event will feature a panel discussion with congressional, government, non-profit and industry leaders on skin cancer prevention and how sunscreen can help.
The Destination Healthy Skin RV, equipped with two private exam rooms, travels around the country from May to September spending two days in each community it visits.
Local volunteer dermatologists provide free, full-body skin cancer screenings on board the RV. Participants receive skin cancer prevention and early detection literature.
“Destination Healthy Skin gives us the opportunity to tangibly connect with thousands of people each year as our RV makes its way around the country,” said Dan Latore, executive director of The Skin Cancer Foundation.
“About 60% of our programme participants have never had a prior skin cancer screening. Partners like DSM help make this meaningful public service possible, and we’re grateful to have their support.”
