Summer is here.

Unfortunately, so is skin cancer risk.

Too much unprotected exposure to the sun can give you more than a sun burn.

Rates of melanoma—the most dangerous form of skin cancer—have skyrocketed in recent years. This rise is happening even among Latinos and other dark-skinned populations.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, to share strategies to improve the prevention of skin cancer among Latinos and all people:
