Students Against Melanoma

Why Sunscreen Dispensers?

Melanoma is the #1 diagnosed and fastest-growing cancer in the US with 4.9 million people diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the US. Despite statistics like these, skin cancer is easily preventable with the application of sunscreen as well as by staying out of the sun and wearing protective clothing. With the installation of sunscreen dispensers at UREC's outdoor pool and surrounding areas, students can now have access to free sunscreen that allows them to take one step further to protect their skin from the sun's harmful rays.
