View Full Description

Full Description

Children living in rural and under-served communities are at high risk for skin cancer; however, there are no evidence-based sun safety interventions showing durable effects for this vulnerable pediatric population. The objective of this proposal is to rigorously test a novel, multi-level approach to skin cancer prevention among young rural children that is delivered through developmental baseball leagues. To attain this objective, the investigators will conduct a two-arm cluster-randomized trial with the primary outcome being multi-behavior sun protection change among children.
