Summer Safety Tips

Published Date






Welcome to Public Health Moment from the University of Minnesota. This week, families across the United States will be involved in numerous events as they celebrate summer and the independence of our country. To ensure that our fun time is also safe, Nancy Nachreiner, a professor of environmental health sciences at the University of Minnesota, recommends a dose of common sense. <clip: “When the kids are out on their bikes or riding their skateboards…it’s good if they’ve actually had some formal lessons.”> Nachreiner also recommends wearing life jackets when you are in or near the water. And use sun screen and insect repellent. <clip: “And making sure that you’re wearing sunglasses and a hat…put on your skin that would help.” With another Public Health Moment, I’m John Finnegan.
