Sunscreen for Life, founded in October 2014 by two aspiring medical students, is a non- profit organization looking to educate our future generations about the importance of sun protection. Sunscreen for Life speaks at schools, community centers, and other public entities to provide information about skin cancer prevention via easy to understand presentations for children and parents alike. 80% of skin sun damage is accrued before the age of eighteen, making it of the utmost importance to teach children about sunscreen. Here at Sunscreen for Life we make the learning process easy, fun, and engaging! Please explore our website and feel free to reach out to our team with any questions about sun protection!
