Protecting and Checking Your Skin

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer worldwide; affecting nearly 10,000 people every single day.

In an article published by the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, informaticians tracked melanoma survivors’ sun exposure by wearing ultraviolet radiation sensors.

What did they discover? Melanoma survivors believe tracking their sun exposure can help them protect their skin and improve their sun protection habits.

Why Informatics? So, we can reduce the 4 million Americans diagnosed with skin cancer each year.
