Awareness – changing people’s behaviour, one person at a time
We go into the community and raise awareness about melanoma. Not only do we pass on the correct information about melanoma prevention, we also inspire people to change their behaviour positively towards their health.
We can do this in many different ways:
- We conduct education sessions at schools, community groups and the workplace about melanoma prevention and being proactive towards health.
- We create community events that give people the opportunity to learn about melanoma prevention in an interactive way, like our melanomaWA Community Skin Screening week. Learning is doing!
- We hold fun events where people come together in a positive and happy environment, and learn about melanoma while supporting our mission to reduce the impact of melanoma on our community. Like our Zumbathon.
- Our melanomaWA ambassadors help to spread awareness to minimise the impact of melanoma on West Australians.
Skin cancer is Australia’s national cancer, and melanoma is the most threatening type of skin cancer. So we want to keep melanoma topical and remind you all through the year that you need to stay safe in the sun and look after your skin.
