Fun-day Friday

Good  afternoon one and all, and Happy Friday! I think we, in Baltimore, can FINALLY say that summer has arrived. Hello sunshine!  Welcome 90 degree weather, we have MISSED YOU!!

With the arrival of this fantastic weather, we can now pack up our winter-wear and spend our weekends lounging by the pool, taking out the boat, and sitting OUTSIDE at all of our favorite lunch spots. Nothing is better than ending the week knowing you will get to spend some quality time outdoors. However, with the sweet, sweet summertime comes something we all fear- the dreaded sunburn.

Most of us find that summer has arrived only after we feel the hot sting and tightness of the never-forgiving sunburn. So, as part of the School of Public Health, we feel that it’s necessary to remind everyone that it’s better to be safe than sorry. Whether you’re walking home from work, taking a long drive, or enjoying a beverage on your deck, put on sunscreen! More importantly, use sunscreen properly and be sure to pick the right kind. You don’t want to end up like these folks:
