By 2020, Eyes On Cancer hopes to train 20,000 beauty professionals to spot signs of cancer through its skin cancer awareness and early detection course. The goal: to lower the fatality rates for melanoma. The Eyes On Cancer online training course is designed to make beauty professionals more aware of skin cancer and teach them to recognize the early signs of melanoma on their clients, particularly on the scalp, neck, ears, and other places a client is not likely to see on her own body. For a $10 donation, beauty professionals can access the organization’s self-paced certification course.
