DIG Success at Bacliff Community FunFest

DIG officers Alison Wiesenthal and Lindsey Hunter got up early last Saturday morning and had a great time volunteering at the Bacliff Community FunFest this past weekend. We made UV bead bracelets with the children and gave out information on sun protection. We showed the children that when their bracelets begin to turn from clear to color, it's time to put on sunscreen or come in out of the sun. The kids really enjoyed running inside and outside, watching the beads change color as the youngsters exposed their bracelets to UV light.

Here is a kind thank you letter from the FunFest chairman for UTMB DIG's participation:

Dear Alison and UTMB Dermatology,

Thank you so much for your participation in the Community Funfest! I think it was a terrific event with a lot of good, healthy things going on! We really appreciate your staffing this event on a Saturday, when so many folks are on vacation. The community was definitely benefited (and had a lot of fun!) by this event.

Many thanks!
