SolSurvivors celebrates the signing of Utah's teen tanning bed ban

In 2012, SolSurvivors board members MaryAnn Gerber, Bob Weir, and Dr. Sancy Leachman shook hands with Utah Governor Gary Herbert as he signed a bill into law to ban children and teenagers under age 18 from using indoor tanning beds.

When the bill was proposed, a number of SolSurvivors volunteers gave media interviews promoting skin cancer awareness and the dangers of tanning. MaryAnn even went undercover to expose the lack of tanning salon employee education as to the dangers and procedures to be followed regarding indoor tanning.
