ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — In an effort to combat skin cancer and raise awareness about the importance of protecting your skin from harmful sun rays, Guthrie health system along with the City of Corning parks and recreation department are teaming up to install sunscreen dispensers at local parks and pools.
The dispensers will offer touch free dispensing of SPF 30+ sunscreen. It is 100% natural, environmentally friendly, and weather resistant. Skin cancer is the number one diagnosed cancer in the United States, but also the most preventable. The goal is to help protect residents by making sunscreen more accessible.
The first dispenser will be installed at Denison Park Pool in Corning.
