This toolkit can help organizers develop a Choose Your Cover skin cancer awareness, education, and free screening program in their community.

The toolkit includes the following:
  • Facts about skin cancer
  • Choose Your Cover quick guide
  • Skin cancer examination protocols
  • Checklist for sites
  • Sample budget
  • Budget template
  • Proclamation request letter
  • Participant followup letter
