Wellness Corner
Everyone needs a little sunshine to stay healthy! Sunlight helps our bodies make vitamin D which in turn helps grow strong healthy bones.  But too much sunlight can be damaging.

Nemours Kids Health shares some great sun safety tips as well as what to do if you or your child get a sunburn. With summer here and more time spent outside, this is a great resource to share with families!

Stay sun safe out there!

When: July 6th at 12:30 pm
Where: Facebook Live!
Topic: Hydration and Skincare

Join us for Well-Being Wednesday next month hosted by Susanna Creed!  For more details and the event itself, be sure to like and follow our Facebook page!
