Sun Safety

Protect yourself from the sun this summer!

You are at an increased risk of the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays when traveling near the equator, during summer months, at high altitudes, and between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. You can even be exposed to UV rays on cloudy days! Reflection from the snow, sand, and water increases sun exposure, so protect yourself from the sun during outdoor activities, including skiing (snow or water), spending time at the beach, swimming, and sailing.

Physicians are only required to secure a medical license to practice medicine in any given state. Physicians who choose to pursue certification are enhancing their medical knowledge beyond that required of state licensure.
