Sun Protective Clothing

Laura Collins, APN DCNP

As dermatology providers we educate our patients regularly on the importance of wearing sunscreen. If you are someone who works outdoors, spends a lot of time in the sun, or are going on a vacation to a sunny place, then you may wish to give yourself the additional coverage of Sun Protective Clothing.
