We want to raise awareness about the need for effective sun protection.
Sonora, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
UV Skinz, a leading provider of sun protective wear, is proud to announce its exhibitor participation in the American Academy of Dermatology’s 72nd Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Denver, Colorado from March 21-25, 2014. UV Skinz encourages attendees of the 2014 AAD Annual Meeting to visit booth #4233 to learn about UV Skinz’ vast array of sun protective wear and accessories, medical partner discount opportunities, and to find out just how easy it is to live sun safe while having fun outdoors.
UV Skinz attendance at the 2014 AAD Annual Meeting marks their fourth appearance and another step forward in the company’s mission to protect children and adults from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV radiation. UV Skinz expertise is sun safety, and just like dermatologists everywhere, the company wants to ensure people are educated and protected. “Most people don’t realize that one severe sunburn as a child more than doubles the risk of getting skin 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 and the ease of using UPF certified clothing. Our products only require one application for all day protection and carry a UPF rating of 50+, which blocks 98% of 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 the UV Skinz website at http://www.uvskinz.com.
More than 2 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year, and current estimates state that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. UV Skinz hopes to change these statistics, as over 90% of these cancers are preventable. “By attending the 2014 AAD Annual Meeting, we hope to meet new partners who will help us spread the word about sun safety and the need for effective sun protection,” states Rhonda Sparks.
