Skin cancer rates have been steadily increasing over the last 20 years despite persistent efforts to educate the public on skin cancer prevention and sun safety. Adolescents and young adults are an especially important demographic to reach, as increased UV exposure during these years leads to greatly increased risks of developing skin cancer. Our survey aims to investigate the attitudes and behaviors regarding sun protection and tanning among adolescents and young adults (age range, 13-27 years).
