SunWise Program Evaluation
Help us continue to evaluate and improve the SunWise program by completing our educator survey.
The SunWise Program recognizes the challenge in measuring the effectiveness of its effort to create sustained SunWise behavior, especially given the latency period associated with the onset of UV-related health effects. Therefore, the careful and consistent evaluation of program effectiveness through a variety of interim measurements is integral to SunWise's success.
