The University of Arizona Skin Cancer Institute works with organizations whose employees are at high risk for skin cancer to develop appropriate health education components.
The SCI is helping our communities become sunsafe by offering the Protect Your Skin kit. The kit allows employers and businesses the opportunity to offer sunscreen as part of a sun safe lifestyle! Visit the official Protect Your Skin website to learn more.
The SCI has a partnership with Sanofi-Aventis in Tucson to help insure the health and well-being of its employees. Twice a year, the SCI staff and physicians offer skin cancer screenings and education to all interested employees. The service helps to detect cancers early and allows employees to become more aware of their skin and how to protect it from skin cancer.
“Here at the Sanofi Tucson Research Center, we have been bringing in the AZ Skin Cancer Institute for many years and the doctors and staff have been top-notch. The health benefit is undeniably fantastic as several people at the site have had potentially fatal abnormalities identified during these screenings.
-Kim Stone, senior manager for health, safety and the environment at Sanofi Aventis-
The SCI offers many resources that can be useful to business and employers who want to keep thier employees happy, healthy and safe from the sun.
The Arizona Skin Cancer Institute has developed several educational brochures. We offer information about skin cancer, sunscreen facts, sun protection for outdoor workers and how to protect children from the sun.
These materials are available at a nominal cost for use at your practice or facility.

A collaborative effort of the Arizona Cancer Center Skin Cancer Institute, the College of Nursing and the Office of Instruction and Assessment (OIA) resulted in the 12-minute video. The video features a detailed demonstration of how to perform a skin self-exam, what to look for, and testimonials from skin cancer survivors. The video is perfect for doctors offices, employee education and schools.
This video is available for purchase. Please contact Lisa Quale at (520) 626-1074 or firstname.lastname@example.org
