Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine wishes you and your family a healthy and safe summer. Please use sunscreen to help prevent sunburn because every sunburn increases your child's skin cancer risk considerably.  Also, use insect repellant and check your children for ticks as we live in a high risk area for Lyme disease in addition to other tick borne illnesses. Children sustain more traumatic brain injuries from bicycle accidents (many of them with routine riding around home) than from all contact sports combines. Please require them to wear a helmet-even if they roll their eyes!  Lastly, if boating, please require your children to wear a life-vest even if they are good swimmers.  Good health and safety takes preparedness and planning.
