Downtown West Palm Beach visitors will now be able to enjoy the waterfront and outdoor activities knowing they are staying protected from the sun, thanks to the new Sunscreen Application Machine (SAM) stationed near the fountains at the end of Clematis Street.
The Richard David Kann (RDK) Melanoma Foundation, headquartered in West Palm Beach, hosted a dedication ceremony May 17 at The Lake Pavilion to unveil the 30 SPF sunscreen dispenser.
SAM is provided in partnership with RDK Melanoma Foundation, Dr. Steven Rosenberg of Palm Beach Dermatology, National Skin Education Foundation and the city of West Palm Beach. Mayor Jeri Muoio was among the many in attendance.
“We especially thank Dr. Steven Rosenberg for sponsoring the dispenser as part of the initiative to raise awareness about the dangers of the sun and support the use of sunscreen – a simple step we can all take to protect ourselves from skin cancer,” said Stacy Ostrau, executive director of RDK Melanoma Foundation.
