In addition to toiletries and swimsuits, Pediatric Sun Protective Foundation is urging Chicago parents to pack protective sun wear for their kids when heading to the beach or pool this summer.

May is "Melanoma Awareness Month". Dr. Amy Brodsky, a board certified dermatologist has some advice for parents.

Pediatric Sun Protective Foundation will be at the Chicago Cubs game on June 2 handing out youth sun protective shirts to the first 5000 youth fans. Shirts are sponsored by Sun Protection Zone and AAD. Park districts and schools can purchase sun protective wear via PSPF website all year long.
