Teens and Tanning Video Worksheet

"A useful and informative mythbusting guide, this is highly recommended." ★★★½
--Video Librarian, Jan/Feb 2006


As part of the Mid-Hudson Library Systems Health Information Project, a group of 35 New York state teens evaluated 89 health-related videos from around the country. The Teens and Tanning Video ranked #2!

"[The video] made me never want to go to the tanning booth. So I definately got the message. I liked it."
--Teen Review Pannel, Mid-Hudson Library Systems Health Information Project

"The sun affects all teens, and not many know the damage it can do. This video tells you exactly how to protect yourself from the sun."
