SunWise Skin Cancer Prevention Educational Program

Educators, parents, and caregivers can play a major role in protecting children by teaching and modeling sun safe behaviors, and the SunWise program can help. The SunWise program is a free environmental and health education program to teach K-8 children about sun safety, UV radiation, and stratospheric ozone. The SunWise Program at the Arizona Department of Health Services serves as community resource with the mission of educating Arizonans about the benefits of sun safety, in hopes of reducing overexposure to the sun and therefore preventing the development of skin cancer.

Afterschool programs can access the SunWise curriculum for free by filling out the registration form on the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF)’s website. The materials are available in both in English and Spanish.

The SunWise Program at the Arizona Department of Health Services is also available for presentations, school assemblies, health fairs, and any exhibit-type events (free of charge). We offer interactive presentations with information that is appropriate and tailored towards each specific audience. For more information contact the the SunWise program at or call 602-364-3851.
