Comprehensive Cancer Centers Partners with Clark County Parks and Recreation to Offer Free Sunscreen at 42 Facilities


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.

Easy to use sunscreen kiosks have been made available at 28 Clark County Parks facilities (including recreation centers, community centers, senior centers and the Clark County Museums); three year-round pools; 10 seasonal pools and the Camp Lee/Mount Charleston Camp Site.

“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.

In addition to its work with Clark County Parks and Recreation, Comprehensive has sunscreen partnerships with: Las Vegas Aviators, Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas, Nevada Cancer Coalition, Las Vegas Springs Preserve, Downtown Summerlin®, Cowabunga Bay, UNLV, Las Vegas Lights FC, The PENTA Building Group and Cadence master-planned community.
