Glenview, IL – November 19, 2015
LCR Hallcrest has donated 150,000
UV INDICATOR reusable cards to the American Cancer Society. These wallet sized
cards are designed to measure approximate UV intensity with the intent of reminding
individuals to protect themselves from the damaging effects of exposure to sun.
This wallet sized card features a photochromic strip that changes color with
exposure to the sun alerting the user to the presence of harmful UV rays. Sun
safety tips and directions for use are noted on the back of the card.
The American Cancer Society distributed 15,000
of these cards at the Abbot Health & Fitness Expo held in concert with the
Bank of America Marathon held on October 9 and 10th at the McCormick
convention center in Chicago, where they were well received. The UV Indicator
card will be distributed at future health and wellness fairs and expos to
reinforce the necessity of using sunscreen and protecting the skin from
overexposure to the sun.
