      The Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) at the University of Minnesota Medical School volunteered at the "Cancer and the Human Body" event at the Science Museum of Minnesota this past Saturday, March 3rd. Various organizations presented information about different types of cancer and brought interactive activities for children to engage in the material. DIG provided education on sun safety and the prevention of skin cancer. In collaboration with the Women's Dermatologic Society, sunscreen samples were provided to around 300 children and their parents attending the event! Also included at the DIG booth were Dermascans to look at sun damage on the skin, a bracelet-making station with UV beads that change color in the sun, sun safety facts and info sheets, and a wheel to spin and win prizes.
