Sunny Days, Healthy Ways (SDHW) is a series of elementary and middle school sun safety curricula that use a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to teach skin cancer prevention skills to children in grades K-5, and 6-8. A companion program to the elementary curriculum includes interactive computer games. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Cancer Society acknowledge SDHW as a national resource for complying with their recommendations for how schools can help prevent skin cancer.

Numerous school districts throughout the United States have purchased and continue to use the curricula. The program is sold through direct marketing, online sales and catalog orders. Combined, the curricula and interactive programs have sold over 10,000 copies.
