Making sunscreen a part of every athlete’s equipment bag
Team SunSmart educates athletic trainers and student athletes on how to reduce the risks of overexposure to the sun.
Research shows that unprotected sun exposure in childhood and early adulthood contributes exponentially to the incidence of skin cancer as adults. While we encourage a healthy outdoor lifestyle, we want to promote the proper use of sunscreen and change behavior to have everyone treat the sun with respect.
Team SunSmart is designed to promote the health and wellness of student athletes who can be seen as leaders among their peers, making sunscreen application a normal pre-game routine and a staple in every athlete’s equipment bag.
A change in behavior now ensures a healthier tomorrow!
