Wellness Spotlight

sun safety kitty
The sun has powerful effects on one's skin; most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most of this exposure comes from the sun, but some can come from man-made sources such as indoor tanning beds and sun lamps. Those who get a lot of exposure to UV rays are at a greater risk for skin cancer.

In July's Wellness Spotlight, we discuss the UV index, what affects UV exposure, and how to protect yourself from the sun!

Work Well started a new campaign called 'GRIT Worthy Glow-Ups' to share positive, uplifting quotes.

So get ready to glow-up UND! Check it out on Facebook, Instagram, and campus digital displays!
