The Richard David Kann (RDK) Melanoma Foundation has been working locally and nationally for over 20 years to educate students grades K-12 on the importance of sunsafe behavior and raise awareness about the life-saving techniques for early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma, its deadliest form. Their newest initiative the “RAY™” Project, involves the distribution of sunscreen dispensers in parks, beaches, schools, and outdoor areas, where sun exposure is excessive. The unique Students Against Melanoma (SAM) Clubs in middle and high school, and the SunSmart America™ curricula, programs, and resources, have educated hundreds of thousands of students, families and communities on sun safety behaviors and techniques for prevention and early detection of skin cancer.  Deborah Kann Schwarzberg is Founder and President of the RDK Melanoma Foundation.
