Tanning at Colleges

Cancer-Prevention Advocates Targeting Colleges In Campaign Against Indoor Tanning.


The Boston Globe (5/27, Freyer) reports that “cancer-prevention advocates are targeting colleges in a campaign to unplug indoor tanning, citing studies that link the practice to an increase in melanoma among young people.” Meanwhile, some “colleges...are beginning to change policies.” For instance, “the University of New Hampshire and Salem State University...have moved to stop use of their college cash cards — debit cards that students use to shop — at tanning salons.”
