Important health insurance information

It's time for sunglasses!
Summer's here and whatever your plans, sunglasses are a must. Look amazing, protect your eyes and save money with the latest styles from UHS' Optical Services.
Sun protection tips
Choose sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15; SPF 30 or more is better. Apply generously 20 – 30 minutes before going outdoors and every two hours after that; apply more often if you're swimming or sweating. Throw out sunscreen that's past its expiration date.
If you do get a sunburn, products with aloe are soothing; over-the-counter pain relievers and drinking plenty of water can also help you feel better.
Save on sun protection and care products, and much more at the UHS Pharmacy.
