- Number of Participants That Performed Regular Self-Skin Examinations [ Time Frame: 2 months post-intervention ]The subject will complete 3 questionnaires: one pre-intervention, one immediately post-intervention and one 2 months post-intervention. 5 questions will assess whether or not the patient has completed skin-self examinations and knows which areas of the skin to pay attention to. The pre-intervention and 2 month post-intervention questionnaire will be evaluated to determine the number of participants that performed regular self-skin examinations.
- Number of Participants With Correct Answers on Melanoma Perception Pre-intervention and 2 Months Post-intervention [ Time Frame: 2 months post-intervention ]The subject will complete 3 questionnaires: one pre-intervention, one post-intervention, and one 2 months post-intervention. Several questions will assess the participants knowledge of general melanoma, what it looks like and what are its risk factors. To determine participant retention, the pre-intervention and 2 month post-intervention questionnaires will be evaluated.
