On Wednesday, February 19, Heidi Degodt a Social Worker with Mary Lanning Morrison Cancer Center presented to the 7-9 grade classes about sun safety. The students learned about the purpose of sunscreen and how to properly use sunscreen. They learned what to look for when detecting skin cancer on their own skin and how skin cancer grows in the body. They discussed the dangers of tanning beds how it is an intense concentration of ultraviolet rays and how it is more dangerous than sun exposure, more people develop skin cancer more than smoking.
