Ultraviolet Ray Prevention for Children

(IRB#: IRB_00121617)

Melanoma is the 6th most common type of skin cancer in the United States. The just-in-time intervention (JITAI) application (app) is a tool used on a cell phone. The tool can help children and adults know how much time in ultraviolet rays (UVL) from the sun. Research is needed to learn what children and adults think about using the JITAI app. We hope to reduce the time children spend in UVR, so sunburns occur less.
