Thousands of kids and families will benefit from the Women’s Dermatologic Society’s award-winning “Families Play Safe in the Sun” outreach.

The Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS) invites you to join the Phoenix "Families Play Safe in the Sun" volunteer team for a fun and rewarding community service outreach on January 11 and 12, 2008!
We hope you can participate in the upcoming WDS
"Families Play Safe in the Sun" outreach at the Health and Fitness Expo in conjunction with P.F. Chang’s Rock and Roll Marathon in Phoenix, AZ.

Local volunteers representing the WDS will offer two days of sun safety education and outreach hosted by WDS member, Jennifer Linder, MD. Volunteers will offer:

  • Free skin cancer screenings
  • DermaScan Assessments
  • Educational materials
  • Free sunscreen to the 100,000 Expo visitors

The WDS booth also includes a special kids area with a sun safety coloring contest, quizzes and fun giveaways.

Dermatologists, residents, medical students, PA’s all are welcome to volunteer!

This is a wonderful opportunity to provide an invaluable service to the community and reach out to kids and families from all over Arizona to promote sun safety.

We encourage you to bring your families and friends and enjoy the Expo before or after your shift (expo continues till 7pm on Friday and 5pm on Saturday.) For full details on all attractions, visit:

If you would like to sign up for one or more of the volunteer shifts, please use our online form here, email Lindsay at, or call 1-877-WDS-ROSE. If you would like to join WDS, please visit the WDS membership department here.  It is quick, easy and free for residents.

The WDS campaign draws from its 1,300 members nationally to provide volunteer support in local communities to reach out to families to increase sun safety awareness and healthy skin practices among people of all ages, in all seasons.

Please call or email if you have any questions or would like to volunteer and we hope to see you at the Expo!
