Sonora, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Sonora, CA – October 17, 2012— UV Skinz, a leading provider and internationally distributed brand of sun protective clothing, is proud to announce its exhibitor participation in the American Academy of Pediatrics 2012 National Conference & Exhibition (2012 NCE) in New Orleans, LA from October 20-23, 2012. UV Skinz encourages attendees of the 2012 NCE to visit booth #1247 to learn about UV Skinz’ wide array of sun protective wear and accessories and to understand just how easy it is to live sun safe while having fun outdoors.
UV Skinz’ continued attendance at the 2012 NCE marks another step forward in its mission to protect children from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV radiation. “Most people don’t realize that one severe sunburn as a child more than doubles the risk of getting cancer as an adult,” explains Rhonda Sparks, Chief Executive Officer and President of UV Skinz. Rhonda adds, “The growth trend in sun protection and the fight against melanoma and skin cancer is more prevalent today than ever before. Consumers are not only trying to become educated in the prevention of skin cancer but are incorporating sun protection into their everyday life.”
According to a 2011 report from the American Academy of Dermatology, more than 2 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year. UV Skinz hopes to change these statistics as 98% of skin cancers are preventable. “By attending the 2012 AAP National Conference, we hope to meet new partners who will help us spread the word about sun safety and effective sun protection,” states Rhonda Sparks. “We want our products to work as a preventative to these skin diseases like toothpaste does to cavities.”
