Bratt Elementary Kids Learn Sun Safety From UWF Nursing Students

October 12, 2017

Students at Bratt Elementary School recently learned about sun healthy behaviors.

Bratt was one of four schools in Escambia County selected to be part of the University of West Florida Usha Kundu, MD College of Health’s Ago Shield initiative.

Argo Shield’s goad is to provide proactive sun safety education on proper skin protection from the sun and increase awareness among K-8 children on how to Shield the Skin You’re In.

Fifty nursing school students and faculty from UWF taught sun safety and healthy behaviors to students in grades K-5. Each child took home an Argo Shield tote bag that included a sunscreen sample and an education magnet for home.
