This week, we would like to introduce another one of our community partners, Piedmont Medical! They have dedicated their partnership to supporting our high school and middle school athletic programs and providing tools and resources to keep our families safe and healthy throughout the athletic season. Even though school is out, it's still important to implement illness prevention and safety practices. For Summer Savvy Tips for Avoiding Illnesses, please read below:
Ahh, sweet summertime! Temperatures get hotter, days get longer, drinks get colder and life gets a little better. The hotter season also dishes out a few more risks like drowning and heat strokes. The good news is that summer illnesses and injuries are usually preventable.
Check out our tips for staying healthy and happy this summer!
Sunburn – Almost everyone has had their skin scorched at least once in their lifetime. Sunburns are painful, uncomfortable and can increase your risk of skin cancer. Wear sunscreen and lip screen with a sun protective factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. Remember to reapply it as needed and when you get out of the water. Cover up with clothing and a wide-brimmed hat to protect exposed skin. Drink plenty of cool, non-alcoholic fluids. Seek shade. When possible, avoid outdoor activities during midday, when the sun's rays are strongest.
