About Our 2023 Journal
For more than 40 years, The Skin Cancer Foundation has been fighting the world’s most common cancer with medically reviewed content and programs that are trusted by millions. Since 1982, our annual Journal has been supporting our mission to empower people to take a proactive approach to daily sun protection and the early detection and treatment of skin cancer.
The fresh, ahead-of the curve content is for anyone who cares deeply about skin health. Our articles are written in easy-to-understand language and are edited with great care for timeliness, fact-checking and medical review. The Journal is mailed to every dermatologist in the U.S., and many of our Journal articles are adapted for our blog on SkinCancer.org.
The magazine also highlights the Foundation’s programs and events, as well as our members and donors who support our mission. It’s a hybrid format that is a tangible reminder of who we are and what we do as a nonprofit organization.
For the 2023 edition, we came up with two themes: one on the many benefits of recent innovations in sun protection; the other on the many benefits of giving back. So, we created two covers and two sides to the magazine, and we turned one upside down and had them meet in the middle with an explanatory topsy-turvy center spread. (We've turned them all right-side-up for you in this downloadable version.)
Why? We wanted readers to notice the bright colors from across the room, pick it up and ask, “What’s that?” (The tag line from our Big See early detection campaign.) It is our call to action. We want to inspire change and move the needle. We want people to see the beauty in what we can accomplish — together.
