Sun Safety with the Portland Sea Dogs

In this project, the City of Portland Public Health Division will partner with the Portland Sea Dogs on a Sun Safety campaign for the 2017 baseball season. The campaign will include both sunscreen dispensers as well as sun safety promotion and education throughout the ball park. The Portland Sea Dogs baseball games at Hadlock Field are popular events in Maine lasting from April through September, and the sunscreen dispensers would act as a sustainable tool for increasing sun safety and preventing skin cancer.
