Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation
The Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation has been working to raise awareness about prevention and early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma. The Foundation’s vision is to educate communities on the importance of primary prevention and seeing a dermatologist yearly. The Sun Smart America curriculum and Students Against Melanoma Clubs educate students K-12 about sun safety. RDK and Hall of Fame baseball player, Mike Schmidt, launched The Mike Schmidt Sun Smart USA program in 2017. This grassroots program strives to protect the public at beaches, parks and stadiums with sunscreen dispensers inspiring life-long habits for prevention of skin cancer.
