Your Skin is In

Your Skin Is In is an educational, pledge based program that encourages teens and young adults to make a personal promise that they will protect the skin they’re in. Everyone should be protecting their body’s largest organ and everyone can make a personal promise!┬áThe MFNE has been running this program for 8 years. Traveling all over New England, we have exposed over 100,000 students to this educational program.

Your Skin Is In will open on January 5th, 2015!

Getting more sun won't increase your Vitamin D level, but it will increase your risk of skin cancer.
Melanoma kills one person every 50 minutes. It's the second most common cancer for 15-29 year olds.
The World Health Organization has determined that UV rays from tanning beds cause cancer.
People who use tanning beds once a month before the age of 35 increase their melanoma risk by 75%.
Tanning beds put out 3-6 times the amount of radiation given off by the sun.
