Colorful, easy to use sunscreen kiosks are available at 42 locations throughout Southern Nevada

Comprehensive Cancer Centers (Comprehensive) and Clark County Parks and Recreation have partnered to provide free SPF 30 sunscreen and skin safety tips at 42 locations throughout Southern Nevada.

“Our skin safety partnerships with organizations throughout the valley started six years ago and this partnership with Clark County Parks and Recreation is bringing skin safety measures to so many new places where families enjoy their fun in the sun,” said Comprehensive’s chief executive officer, Jon Bilstein. “We’re always looking to help educate and protect our residents, so they can enjoy outdoor activities and hopefully never become a patient due to sun exposure. This partnership with Clark County Parks is an amazing step forward that will surely be an asset to so many throughout Southern Nevada.”

“Clark County Parks and Recreation Department is thrilled to join Comprehensive in this partnership. We will be able reach the thousands of visitors that enjoy our Parks and Recreation facilities during the summer with both skin protection products and the message of skin cancer prevention. Safety is always our first mission,” said Daniel Hernandez, Director of Parks and Recreation.

ABOUT XPOZ

XPOZ’s main goal is to promote a smoke free scene through music, education and awareness showing  the public that the tobacco industry is destroying the environment, our civil rights, our health, and our culture.

People in the alt music scene are always fighting against injustices and corporate manipulation. Somehow, though, the tobacco industry’s manipulation and global damage has been overlooked because young people that are part of the scene smoke tobacco MORE than all other youth cultures. XPOZ is here to change that. We believe that if people in the scene know more about the destructive practices of the tobacco industry, they will help us support a smoke free scene.

When it comes to smoking, XPOZ believes in fully informed choice that is free from lies and deceit. By celebrating local music and educating people about the harm caused by the tobacco industry, we hope to shift the image of the scene from one that supports smoking to one that is defined by creative music that is smoke free.
