Image of the Week: Ready for some football - and protected from the sun

SUNSPORT kids

Above is a shot of just a few of the Cardinal football fans who applied temporary tattoos – and plenty of sunscreen - from the SUNSPORT booth at the recent Stanford Football Open House. The Open House is an annual opportunity for fans to meet players and run through drills in Stanford Stadium, and SUNSPORT was there to help everyone play safely in the Palo Alto sun.

SUNSPORT, a collaboration of the Stanford Cancer Institute, the medical school’s Department of Dermatology, Stanford Athletics, and Stanford Hospital & Clinics, is Stanford’s first-in-the-nation program to provide sun-exposure education and protection strategies to outdoor athletes and fans. The program is profiled (.pdf) in the latest edition of Stanford Cancer Institute News.

Michael Claeys is the senior communications manager for the Stanford Cancer Institute.
