Message from Jane D. Zimmerman, Ph.D.
PAGNY Chief Communications Officer

Summer has officially begun and it’s a great time to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family.

It is important to remember though that summer fun should be accompanied by smart summer safety—especially with our children. Many summertime health risks are preventable: remember to protect against overexposure to the sun with sunscreen, lightweight clothing and hats. Use insect repellants to guard against insect bites. And check the temperature of swings, slides and other surfaces ahead of time to make sure they are not too hot. Summer’s a great time. Let’s all enjoy it!

To everyone’s good health.
