We want to raise awareness about the need for effective sun protection.
Sonora, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2013
UV Skinz, a leading provider of sun protective wear, is proud to announce its exhibitor participation in the American Academy of Pediatrics 2013 National Conference & Exhibition (2013 NCE) in Orlando, Florida from October 26-28, 2013. UV Skinz encourages attendees of the 2013 NCE to visit booth #215 to learn about UV Skinz’ wide array of sun protective clothing and accessories and to find out just how easy it is to live sun safe while having fun outdoors.
UV Skinz attendance at the 2013 NCE marks their third appearance and 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, “We want to raise awareness about the need for effective sun protection. While our products only require one application for all day protection and carry a UPF rating of 50+, which blocks over 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, most sunscreens require multiple applications for the same period of protection and do not block UVB rays.” More information about UV Skinz and its products can be found on UV Skinz website at http://www.uvskinz.com.
More than 2 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year. UV Skinz hopes to change these statistics as 98% of these cancers are preventable. “By attending the 2013 NCE, we hope to meet new partners who will help us spread the word about sun safety and effective sun protection,” states Rhonda Sparks.
Save A Baby’s Skin Campaign
Each year in the month of May in recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, UV Skinz donates thousands of their “What’s A Sunburn?” baby UV sun shirts to customers, pediatricians, and maternity wards across the nation. “We hope that we can partner with even more pediatricians as we believe that all babies deserve quality protection from the sun. We’re committed to offering these shirts to raise awareness for the need of good sun protection from an early age,” says Rhonda. She adds, “Education is imperative to help eradicate this disease which is almost entirely preventable and it starts with the parents and the littlest members of the family.”
