Nevada Adopts SUNucate Legislation

swing set

The SUNucate coalition congratulates Nevada for becoming the 21st state to implement SUNucate model legislation!

The law, signed by Governor Steve Sisolak, enables students to possess and use sunscreen and wear protective clothing in school. It also allows schools to teach students sun-safe behaviors.

The effort was assisted by two state partners: the Nevada Society for Dermatology and Dermatologic Society (NSDDS) and the Nevada State Medical Association. “The SUNucate initiative aligns with the newly created Nevada Society for Dermatology and Dermatologic Society mission and its dedication to public education efforts on behalf of dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons and their patients,” said NSDDS President and Founding Member Whitney Hovenic, MD. “We are pleased to be part of this important effort in Nevada.”
