July is Summer Safety Month
The break from school means more time for teens and families to enjoy the outdoors. Teen Health Connection strives to keep you safe and healthy. For the month of July, our focus is on Summer Safety. Below are some quick tips to safely enjoy yourself and all the fun that summer has to offer:
1. Water Safety: Take advantage of local programs that offer swimming lessons and wear life jackets around natural water settings.
2. Sun Safety: Wear wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses and also regularly apply sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
3. Bike Safety: Always wear a properly fitting bike helmet to reduce the risk of head injury.
