EHAI awards the John Shelley Bursary to the ISF

The Environmental Health Association Ireland (EHAI) has awarded the John Shelly Bursary to the ISF, in support of our work to raise awareness about the dangers of artificial tanning devices e.g. sunbeds, and the risks associated with overexposure to natural ultraviolet radiation emitted by the Sun.

The EHAI is the professional body representing (among others) the public servants who inspect sunbed-hosting premises throughout Ireland and enforce the regulations regarding the use of these devices in the community.

The ISF is proud and delighted to receive this award from the EHAI Central Council to support the development of our SunSmart materials used in our work to prevent skin cancer.

Prof Anne-Marie Tobin (Consultant Dermatologist and Vice-Chair of the ISF), David McMahon (CEO), Michelle Dolan (Health Promotion), Kate Kivlehan (Deputy Chair of the EHAI), Michelle Greenwood (Health Promotion).

Skin cancer prevention resources including videos, leaflets, infographics and articles are available at the ISF’s dedicated SunSmart webpage.
