 Tampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman reminds his patients about the importance of using sunscreen on a daily basis, but now he is using a new tool to spread the message; He offers text message reminders.

“A new study shows people who receive text messages reminding them to apply sunscreen are twice as likely to do it,” says the Tampa dermatologist. “With those results, why not offer patients text reminders.”

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. “More than a million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year,” explains Dr. Forman. “If a few text messages can help save someone’s life, I’m willing to do it.”
