Do you know your sunscreen?

Do you know your sunscreen? We all know that it is important to use sunscreen on those sunny (and even cloudy!) summer days in order to protect ourselves from sunburns and related skin cancers. But what does all the information on the packaging actually mean and how do you know which sunscreen offers the necessary protection? This NPR article helps to explain sunscreen a little better. At the CMA Foundation, we strive to build the community’s knowledge about important public health issues, such as sun protection.  Remember to keep yourself protected from the sun this summer. http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/06/17/415199721/when-it-comes-to-spfs-and-sunscreens-were-still-in-the-dark
