Your 2016-2017 NCDA Executive Committee


Prom just got a whole a lot healthier, thanks to the NCDA’s leadership and support of the Jim Fulghum Teen Skin Cancer Prevention Act. The NCDA-backed legislation achieved its final hurdle on May 21 when N.C. Governor Pat McCrory signed the bill into law. The new law, which becomes effective on October 1, 2015, prohibits tanning facilities from allowing minors under the age of 18 to use indoor tanning equipment. Governor McCrory signed the hard-won Jim Fulghum Teen Skin Cancer Prevention Act into law at the Executive Mansion with the late Rep. Fulghum’s wife Mary Susan, and his daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter at the Governor’s side.

“This law will save lives and significantly help protect children and young adults from the growing epidemic of skin cancer,” said NCDA President Russell Kilpatrick, MD. “We thank our legislators and the governor for their support and action on this important health issue.”
