Finally...summer weather is here! Along with our favorite outdoor adventures, including trips to the beach and trails, comes the importance of using sunscreen. Sunscreen is proven to prevent skin cancer by protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays. It also helps avoid painful sunburns.
Here are some important things to keep in mind about using sunscreen:
Emerson Hospital, in partnership with IMPACT Melanoma, is pleased to sponsor sunscreen dispensers throughout Acton, Concord, Bedford, Westford, Hudson, Chelmsford, Lincoln and Maynard this summer. These dispensers are for public use and are located in high-traffic locations such as parks, beaches, rail trails, and athletic fields. An ounce of sunscreen is worth a pound of cure!
