Brief Summary:

The goal of this research study is to learn how students react to seeing a photograph of any skin damage they may have on their face. This skin damage may be caused by sun exposure or use of tanning beds. Researchers also want to learn about students' sun protection, tanning behaviors, and attitudes towards sun exposure, sun protection, tanning behaviors and skin cancer.

Researchers will use the results of this study to design programs for students about sun protection and tanning avoidance.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Group 1 - UV Photography Group
Participants complete 1 questionnaire at beginning of study, 1 after receiving education about how to protect skin from sun and how to avoid tanning beds, and 1 at about 3 months after receiving skin protection education. Participants given handouts that discusses skin cancer prevention, sun protection, and how to avoid tanning beds. At beginning of study, 2 photos taken of the face. One photo is a standard photo, the other photo is taken with an ultraviolet (UV) filter.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Sun Protection Behavior Composite Score [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Baseline sun protection behaviors are assessed using self-reported measures of sun protection behaviors. Both the baseline and 3-month behavior composite scores range from 1 to 5 and are calculated as the mean of the four sun protection behavior items.
