Nebraska is SUNucated!

fun-1952775_1920The Nebraska Department of Education recently issued guidance to all schools in the state recommending that children be allowed to possess and use sunscreen without a doctor’s note at school and at school-sponsored events. 

Senator Carol Blood played a key role in developing the policy, and connected different stakeholder groups, such as the Nebraska Dermatology Society and the Nebraska Medical Association, with the Department of Education.  “I am thrilled that Nebraska is stepping up to the plate with commonsense information that will now be consistent throughout our state. We value the health of our children, and this is a great example of how policymakers can work together for the greater good,” she commented.

The Nebraska Dermatology Society and the Nebraska Medical Association are part of the 60-member SUNucate Coalition.
