With one month of summer remaining, MGH Dermatology unveiled the newest outpost aimed at getting people to cover up – with sunscreen – on Boston’s City Hall Plaza Aug. 22. The MGH, Brigham Health and the city of Boston are collaborating with the national nonprofit group IMPACT Melanoma to support 35 of these sunscreen dispensers around the Hub. The sun safety station near City Hall features four dispensers and will remain open for public use through early October.
“Sunscreen dispensers like these can help us safely enjoy our public spaces and outdoor events throughout the summer and into early fall,” says David Fisher, MD, PhD, chief of MGH Dermatology, pictured at right.
