Making the Outdoors Safer for Communities: the American Academy of Dermatology Announces 2008 AAD Shade Structure Program Grant Recipients
Date:5/5/2008

2009 program applications are due on April 10, 2009. Recipients of the 2009 Shade Structure Program grants will be announced on Monday, June 22, 2009.

Since 2002 the Academy has awarded 133 shade structure grants to organizations across the country. These shade structures provide shade for more than 108,677 individuals.

"This program furthers the Academy's commitment to reducing the incidence of skin cancer by increasing the amount of shade available and encouraging individuals and communities to incorporate sun safety into their daily outdoor activities," said Dr. Hanke.

This year, more than 1 million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the United States. It is estimated that there will be about 116,500 new cases of melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer) in 2008.
