Project Details

Recommendations regarding sun-smart behaviour can be complex and confusing. What do young women understand about sun-smart behaviour and how do they perceive their own sun-smart behaviour? Young women’s understanding of recommended sun-smart behaviours and their perception of their own sun-smart behaviours will be the focus of this research project. Self-reported data will be compared to objectively measured sun exposure using personal UV dosimeters. Suitable for Honours, MDRP, MBiomedSc, MPH, or Masters by Research studies.

Research Opportunities
