Educates practitioners who see skin during their normal work routine on how to tenderly advise their clients to be checked by a doctor
Pro SunSmart trains relevant practitioners (e.g. salon professionals, massage artists , physical therapists and personal trainers, etc.) to identify potential skin cancers and advise clients to seek medical care.
Ray Festa was diagnosed with malignant Melanoma too late to save his life. What makes the story even more unfortunate was that he had been seen by an oncologist every 6 weeks for the last 8 years of his life and had that medical practitioner been more aware of the signs of skin cancer, Ray may still be alive today. It is for that reason that much of our work is dedicated to educating all those who are exposed to our skin about the warning signs of possible skin cancers.
Pro SunSmart is designed to educate and provide tools for the people who are many times our first line of defense—massage therapists, physical therapists, personal trainers, hair stylist and others.
