Coast-2-Coast Program

This member-driven program is an extension of the Play Safe in the Sun Program and provides tools and resources for local sun safety and skin cancer prevention activities. Through WDS's Coast-2-Coast Program, members are encouraged and equipped to create their own educational outreach events in their offices and communities throughout the year.
 

DESIGNING YOUR OWN OUTREACH EVENT
Simple. Fun. Rewarding.

Some examples of successful activities presented by WDS members in previous Coast-2-Coast programs have included:
-- Office skin cancer screening days and sun safety education
-- School assemblies and classroom visits
-- Community talks to local organizations and clubs
-- Outreach at baseball games (pro and Little League) or other sporting events
-- News interviews in local media
-- Workplace screenings (dermatologist visits local newspapers and businesses)
