Sun­screen at parks

Orlando Sentinel (Sunday) - - OPINION - Bea­con Col­lege: as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor,

A.J. Mars­den,

Liv­ing in the Sunshine State pro­vides us more sunny days than cloudy ones, but all those sunny days dra­mat­i­cally in­crease our risk of de­vel­op­ing skin can­cer. Or­ange, Semi­nole, and Lake coun­ties un­der­stand this risk and have part­nered with Or­lando Health and the Univer­sity of Florida Health Can­cer Cen­ter to in­stall sun­screen dis­pensers in county parks — at no cost to the coun­ties. The dis­pensers will pro­vide park go­ers with SPF 50 sun­screen — free of charge. This part­ner­ship is a creative ex­am­ple of how gov­ern­ments and busi­nesses can work to­gether to ex­pand preven­tion ef­forts and truly make a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­ni­ties.
