Be smart in the sun and still have fun

Mayo Clinic created a fun, informative video for children and teens about how to stay safe in the summer sun.

“To get the message out to kids of all ages about the importance of skin cancer prevention, Mayo Clinic created a cartoon-style public service announcement (PSA), “Have Fun in the Sun, But Be Sun Smart.” In the PSA, two animal moles enjoy a sunny day at the beach. One is protected from the sun. The other isn’t, gets a sunburn that ruins his day and develops a skin mole that sends him to the doctor. The doctor explains the danger of skin cancer and the importance of sun smarts: using sunscreen, skipping tanning beds, seeking shade and getting spots checked.” Watch here.
