Abstract/OtherAbstract:
UV radiation exposure increases skin cancer risk. A substantial portion of a person's UV exposure occurs before the age of 18 years. We sought to determine UVB radiation exposure levels in high-school students during normal daily activity. Digital dosimeters were worn by 4 high-school students during 11 school days. Students were subjected to daily erythemal and suberythemal doses of UVB radiation. Programs to educate high-school students in sun-protective practices even during regular school activities are needed.
