It’s almost that time of year again, where a few UV Skinz team members get to take a trip to the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference and Exhibition which will take place in Washington D.C. this year (we leave in two days!! :-)) Each year  we enjoy discussing plans pediatricians have for keeping their patients sun-safe and educated, and this year we plan to encourage these doctors to have a solid sun protection strategy for each and every patient that steps through their office. AAP’s slogan is “Dedicated to the Health of All Children” so we are certain this influential group of pediatricians are just as dedicated as we are to the prevention of sunburns, skin cancer, and sun damage in their young patients. “By attending the 2015 AAP Annual Meeting, we look forward to meeting like-minded professionals who want to help us spread the word about sun safety and the need for effective sun protection, especially when it comes to our children.” UV Skinz CEO Rhonda Sparks stated in a recent Press Release.

Skin cancer is currently the most common cancer in the United States, with current estimates stating one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. The UV Skinz Team hopes to change these statistics by educating people about the dangers of unprotected UV exposure and by getting them COVERED with sun protective clothing. We believe in a world where no adult or child should know the feeling of a sunburn, and families are able to enjoy peace of mind in the sun while spending time outdoors!

…we look forward to meeting like-minded professionals who want to help us spread the word about sun safety and the need for effective sun protection, especially when it comes to our children. – UV Skinz Founder and CEO, Rhonda Sparks.

We hope pediatricians attending the 2015 AAP Conference in Washington D.C. this year will join us in our mission to get families covered by educating patients and parents about the importance of sun safety, and the convenience of sun protective clothing. If you are a doctor and will be in attendance this year, please stop by our booth (1027) to learn more about how UV Skinz can help you with your sun protection strategy! 🙂
