JULY 2018

July is UV Safety Month. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, therefore, it is not a surprise that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. You can reduce your risk of skin cancer by protecting your skin from overexposure to ultraviolet rays, which is especially important during the summer months and cloudy days.

April is Stress Awareness Month. Stress is a part of everyone's daily life, you are not alone; you can either learn from it or it could potentially cause many problems. Studies from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) say, seven out of ten adults in the United States experience stress or anxiety daily, and most say it interferes at least moderately with their lives.
