Before you leave the house, don’t forget to bring along your bottle of sunscreen, hat and shades.

Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer, but it is also one of the most preventable kinds.

Protect your family’s skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. The American Cancer Society has a slogan that’s easy to remember: Slip! Slop! Slap! And Wrap.

It means: Slip on a shirt. Slop on sunscreen. Slap on a hat. Wrap on sunglasses to protect your eyes and sensitive skin around them.

The organization recommends wearing sunscreen labeled as “broad spectrum protection” and a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or higher for all skin that is not covered. Wear sunscreen even on cloudy days. Reapply it every two hours.

Registration has started for the Back to School Roundup on August 10 in Fort Worth, with free school supplies, immunizations and health screenings. JPS will be there to provide information about the JPS Connection program and our school-based health centers. Registration is required. Here is the link for where to register and documents you’ll need to register.
