The purpose

Skin cancer risk is largely determined by sun exposure during childhood. This study determines the effectiveness of a mailed intervention designed to increase sun protection for children age 6-9 years old. The intervention includes newsletters for parents that include risk information tailored to each child. Also included are sun protection resources such as a swim shirt, a sun hat, and sunscreen. Participants receive the intervention over 3 consecutive years, and data collection includes telephone interviews and skin exams. The study hypothesis is that receipt of the intervention will result in improved sun protection of the child.
