May 28, 2021: DON’T FRY DAY NEWSLETTER
The National Council Declares the Friday before Memorial Day, as “Don’t Fry Day” To Encourage Sun Safety Awareness.
“After a year of COVID we’re all eager to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. But, much as we’ve been working at protecting ourselves from the hidden virus, we also must protect ourselves from the hidden dangers of ultraviolet radiation,” says Dr. Boris Lushniak, co-chair of the National Council for Skin Cancer Prevention and former Acting US Surgeon General. ” Don’t Fry Day should remind us all to be COVID-safe but also to be sun-safe, by applying sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and throwing on a wide-brimmed hat, while enjoying what the summer brings us”.
“Don’t Fry Day,” now in its thirteenth year, is a public awareness campaign that aims to reduce the number of new skin cancer diagnoses by promoting sun safety and encouraging people to protect their skin while enjoying the outdoors.
