Pre-and post-test results analysis conducted in 2002 demonstrated  positive attitude and behavioral changes toward sun safety.

"Project S.A.F.E.T.Y. has been a huge success for my students and me. We live in the sunbelt and are part of a culture that still admires 'sun-tanned' skin...The 'ABCD' interactive activity was very effective in showing the many 'faces' of melanoma... Most students went from, 'I never wear sunscreen' to, 'I'll never step outside without wearing sunscreen!'"
