Learn Skin Protection Tips At Summer Sun Safety Day
Posted May 12, 1999
In an effort to make summer a little safer, Health*Matters is sponsoring an education fair on skin cancer prevention and eye protection Wednesday, June 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Campanile Esplanade.
At "Summer Sun Safety Day," participants can have their faces Dermascanned to assess sun damage, have their sunglasses tested for UV protection, pick-up free sunscreen samples and enter a raffle for prizes.
According to the National Cancer Institute, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. Forty to 50 percent of Americans who live to age 65 will have skin cancer at least once.
"It's never too late to start protecting yourself," said Trish Ratto, Health*Matters manager. "We hope Summer Sun Safety Day will help teach people the best methods for doing so."
