Assemblyman Anthony D’Urso and his staff recently participated in the Town of North Hempstead’s annual Senior Health Fair at North Hempstead Beach Park, held in conjunction with the summer weekly Funday Monday.
The Assemblyman had a table which provided information, sunscreen bracelets that change color when exposed to UV rays and bracelets that keep mosquitos and other insects away. His office runs the Skin-telligence program during the summer to inform constituents about the necessity of being careful in the sun and the dangers caused by not having proper protection. They handed out pamphlets, sunscreen samples, lip balms, UV detecting bracelets, and skin-care literature. In addition, free skin-damage screenings were provided.
The Skin-telligence program is partnered with the Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign which promotes changing our attitudes, thinking, and behaviors about not having proper protection when exposed to the sun’s UV Rays, tanning, and tanning bed use.
“I hope that information provided by our Skin-telligence program will have a big impact towards keeping everyone safe from skin damage,” D’Urso said.
His constituents will have the opportunity to speak directly to the Assemblyman and his staff at the “Skin-telligence” events at the following locations and dates: Whitney Pond Park Pool on Thursday, August 9 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Manorhaven Pool on Friday, August 10 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Clinton G.
