OGH shines light on sun safety

Posted on: 07/03/2019

Olean General Hospital’s Lexi Wilson, RN, is gearing up for her second year of educating youngsters about the dangers of sun exposure.

In its ninth year, the sun safety program is part of the hospital’s Community Connections program and educates the community about the dangers of long term sun exposure and how to prevent sun damage.

This summer, she plans to visit summer camp programs in the region where she presents sun safety information. The presentation includes fun activities and prizes as well as educational take home flyers and sunscreen samples.

“I want to reach more this year and am willing to go speak to as many as possible. I hope to reach 100-150 kids this year. That would be amazing,” Wilson said. “I really enjoy it and (the program) seems to go over well with the kids.”

If a group is interested in having Wilson present her sun safety program, email awilson@ogh.org.
